Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) treatment focuses on helping children with a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives.  OT can help kids with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.  Some people may think that occupational therapy is only for adults; kids, after all, do not have occupations.  But a child's main job is playing and learning, and occupational therapists can evaluate kids' skills for playing, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group.
