Philadelphia Occupational Therapy for Kids

Why Starfish?

Starfish regenerate their arms which signifies growth and renewal. This symbolizes the healing process which requires time and the development of grit through grace. Each arm of the starfish represents part of Starfish Occupational Therapy, PLLC mission: grit, grace, character, confidence and knowledge. Such critical strategies are relied on when treating children with chronic conditions. Starfish use only their sensory systems to navigate their environment and many children needing OT have neurological differences that require focus on sensory development. Harnessing control of our sensory systems is a foundational skill needed for play and life skill development.
