Occupational Therapy Practitioners(OT's) work with children experiencing delays or challenges in development. They work with each child on self-care, as well as everyday tasks at home or school to help children achieve independence by improving their physical, cognitive, and social functioning.
OT's identify and modify barriers that interfere with, or restrict a child’s functional performance. By adapting activities, materials, and environmental conditions children can participate under different conditions and in various environments.To extend therapeutic intervention outside of the clinic, OT's also teach skills and strategies to children and their families.
Sessions may include exercises or activities that focus on one or more of the following:
FINE MOTOR SKILLS
VISUAL PERCEPTUAL SKILLS
VISUAL MOTOR INTEGRATION
