Acquiring or reacquiring skills needed to perform daily life activities or “occupations” is what occupational therapy helps children do. Our therapists focus on a child’s primary occupation, which is play. Some other occupations include developmentally appropriate activities such as sitting, stacking blocks, eating a snack, getting dressed and drawing a picture.
OTs use their background and experience to determine the underlying difficulties impacting the success and independence of such occupations. By following the child’s lead, our therapist’s create challenges appropriate for each child. Parents and guardians are included from first evaluation, treatment planning, and working with their children for the most optimal outcome.
