Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy is about helping your child develop the skills they need for everyday activities and tasks—like playing, learning, eating, and interacting with others.


Here are a few reasons why your child might benefit from occupational therapy:

  1. Fine motor skills: occupational therapists can help if your child struggles with tasks like holding utensils, using scissors or tying shoelaces. These are crucial skills for everyday life like dressing and feeding themselves.

  2. Sensory processing: some children may have difficulties processing sensory information from the world around them, such as sounds, textures, or movements.. Occupational therapy can help them learn how to manage this information to they feel more comfortable and focused in different environments.

  3. Motor Coordination: If your child has trouble with coordination or balance, occupational can provide exercises and activities to improve these skills. This can make everyday tasks like riding a bike or playing sports much easier and enjoyable!

  4. Self-care skills: occupational therapists can also work with children on self-care skills, such as brushing teeth, bathing, and getting dressed independently. These are important for building confidence and fostering independence as your child grows.

  5. Attention and focus: for children who focus in these areas, occupational therapy can offer strategies to improve concentration and organization. This can help them succeed in school and other activities that require sustained attention.

  6. Feeding skills: Some children have a difficult time trying new foods and only eat a few foods consistently. Occupational therapists are trained to use sensory-integration techniques to increase tolerance of new food smells, flavors, and textures.
