OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Occupational therapy for kids and teens addresses concerns with things such as self-care skills, including feeding, bathing, and dressing; fine motor skills, including writing, tying shoes, and picking up small objects; neuromotor development; and sensory integration.

A child’s occupation is to play. Children learn, explore and participate with others every day. Occupational therapists provide three basic areas of support for children: fine motor, cognitive, and sensory. An occupational therapist can help a child attain greater independence in daily routines and activities.
