Occupational Therapy

What is occupational therapy?  This type of therapy addresses skills for the job of living. Sometimes children need occupational therapy to do things we take for granted such as getting dressed, eating unassisted, reaching and grasping toys, coloring, or simply interacting with others. OT’s can use appropriate activities to help individuals function optimally. OT addresses fine motor skills such as handwriting, self-help skills such as dressing, visual perceptual skills, such as puzzle making and gross motor skills, such as climbing, jumping and bike riding to access the physical environment. Occupational therapy can also address sensory integration; that is, how an individual processes different information in their daily lives.194
