Occupational therapy (OT) helps people achieve independence in all facets of their lives through purposeful activities. If your child has physical disabilities or developmental delays, occupational therapy can improve their cognitive (thinking), physical and sensory-motor skills as well as address psychological, social and environmental factors that impact your child's functioning.
Occupational therapists use play to enhance your child's fine motor skills and muscular strength. They also address feeding and oral motor skills, self-care skills, positioning, adaptive equipment, splint fabrication and use, sensory integration techniques, and assist individuals in acquiring the knowledge, needed to perform. Occupational therapy is beneficial when there are concerns regarding fine motor, sensory, visual motor, handwriting, daily living skills and/or motor planning.
