About Occupational Therapy
Pediatric occupational therapy addresses anything that occupies your child's time.
That means occupational therapists address anything your child (young or old) does from the moment they wake up until the moment they fall asleep at night.
This includes challenges while:
Getting dressed or wearing clothes
Completing bathroom tasks
Eating various foods
Keeping endurance during play
Participating in sports
Understanding social skills
Falling asleep at night
Doing anything else that occupies their time
If there are any barriers to performing daily tasks,
occupational therapists discover strategies to help each child succeed.
Receiving occupational therapy in the comfort of your home means your child can meet their goals faster and the family can have a better understanding of how and why the strategies work.
Here are some examples of what OTs can work on:
FINE MOTORpinching - grasping - fastening - manipulating - lacing - and more
