So, what is Occupational Therapy, or OT for short?
OT can help kids with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
But kids don’t have ‘occupations” right?
Well, not technically, but a child’s job is to play and learn!
If a child is having trouble with their developmental skills which is inhibiting their ability to “do their job” then, an occupational therapist can help!
OTs Evaluate skills for playing, school performance, and daily activities and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group.
This kind of therapy is highly adapted and created for each individual; it focuses on tasks and skills that your kiddo struggles with, or needs some help mastering.
Occupational Therapy sessions can take place anywhere that it needs to, including at home or at school!
We’re so excited to offer OT as one of our services!
