What is Occupational Therapy?
Pediatric occupational therapy helps children gain independence while also strengthening the development of fine motor skills, sensory motor skills, and visual motor skills that children need to function and socialize.
Why does a child need Occupational Therapy?
A child’s role in life is to play and interact with other children. Our pediatric occupational therapists evaluate a child’s current skills for playing, performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group. OT’s help children perform daily activities they may find challenging by addressing sensory, social, behavioral, motor, and environmental issues.
