Occupational therapy, often referred to as "OT" strives to improve a child's ability to participate in everyday activities. Activities take place in school (handwriting, fine motor skills, attention), during play (social interaction, cooperative play, motor coordination) and at home (dressing, feeding, self care). Occupational therapy is individualized and tailored to meet the unique needs of the children we serve. Since children learn best through playful interactions, occupational therapy is typically play based. You can often find an occupational therapist setting up obstacle courses, interacting using games or encouraging your children to explore the world around them through sensory activities.
