Pediatric occupational therapy promotes the development of sensory processing abilities, fine and visual motor skills, and self help skills that support a child’s ability to function and socialize in their home, school, play, and community environments.
Occupational therapy addresses difficulties that children have with sustained attention, the ability to transition among tasks or environments, performance of manipulative and handwriting skills, and independence with daily living skills including dressing, feeding and hygiene.
Occupational therapists help families with daily challenges that can interfere with a child’s productive engagement in play, learning and social opportunities. Strategies range from working to create predictable routines to incorporating individualized sensory-based activities and choosing appropriate toys.
