Dr.Ganapathy Sankar enjoys working with families as a team and finds it very important to involve parents in the Occupational therapy process from start to finish. Parents are not only impressed with his warm and caring way with their children, but also his vast clinical knowledge and reasoning skills. He has a very unique approach to Occupational therapy and finds it crucial to not only understand the physical and mental state of the child, but the child as a whole. He combines many treatment techniques and philosophies and tailors a unique protocol for each child. Even though two children may present with similar impairments, each individual responds to care very differently. He is most satisfied when he can assist children in reaching functional goals and ultimately improve their quality of life.
