Occupational Therapy (OT)
Occupational Therapy (OT) for children helps develop physical and adaptive skills that will help the child improve interactions and functional skills in the physical and social world. The functional skills that OT focuses on developing are related to sensory-motor integration, which allows the child to accurately interpret and organize information.
The use of hands and fingers
Co-ordination of movement
Self-help skills such as dressing, eating with a fork and spoon and tying shoe laces
Fine and gross motor skills; positioning for school work, and handwriting.
