Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is the therapeutic use of self-care, work, and play activities to increase independent function, enhance development, and prevent disabilities and may include adaption of task or environment to achieve maximum independence and enhance quality.

Occupational therapists are trained to treat clients holistically, addressing their cognitive, emotional, and physical needs through functional, activity-based treatment. An OT is concerned with improving a person's occupational performance. In a pediatric setting an OT deals with children whose occupations are usually players, preschoolers, or students.

Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists use therapeutic purposeful activities to help children and adults function better physically, emotionally, academically and socially in their daily activities.
