The occupational therapy team at Kinetic Edge specializes in treating patients with hand, wrist, or elbow problems, as well as motor skill delays and reflex and sensory processing issues. In addition to our adult occupation therapy sessions, we also offer pediatric occupational therapy to children and their families. Occupational therapists are available at our Des Moines, Newton, Oskaloosa and Pella clinics.
Occupational therapists at Kinetic Edge also specialize in pediatric occupational therapy to further assist the mental and physical development of the child. Occupational therapy can benefit a wide variety of children. Some examples include kids struggling with learning, picky eaters, children having difficulty calming down or staying focused, kids with balance and coordination difficulties, and those with delayed fine motor skills.
Once an occupational therapist evaluates your child, they will select activities that are interesting and meaningful to your child that work towards their individual therapeutic goals. Therapy sessions that children perceive as fun, motivating, and playful are essential to helping them thrive and excel. The occupational therapist has specific tasks in mind for your child to meet goals and uses creative ways to achieve the objectives. If you’ve been wondering “why is my child a picky eater” or if you’re looking for bed wetting solutions, the team at Kinetic Edge may be able to help you and your child.

Our occupational therapists are proud to serve patients across the Ames, Newton, Oskaloosa, Pella, and Des Moines, IA communities.
