Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy addresses the skills and  awareness needed to be successful in an “occupation.” The primary occupations of infants, toddlers, and young children are playing, learning, and interacting with caregivers and, eventually, their peers. For children and youth, occupations are activities that enable them to learn and develop life skills (e.g., school), be creative and/ or derive enjoyment (e.g., play), and thrive (e.g., self-care and relationships with others) as both a means and an end. Occupational therapists address the following:
  • Developmental delays
  • Fine motor skills
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Sensory Needs
  • Activities of daily living (eating, drinking, washing, dressing)
  • Social skills
  • Environmental Adaptations
  • Curriculum modifications
  • Time management
  • Strength and coordination
  • Increased functional performance and independence
