OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational therapy focuses on helping children develop the abilities necessary for the many "occupations" of childhood such as play, self-care, learning, school performance, community skills, and socializing. Pediatric OT includes intervention aimed at developing the underlying sensory and motor foundation necessary for skill development, the development of compensatory strategies, and environmental adaptations needed for successful participation in daily life activities.
