What does Occupational Therapy accomplish?
Occupational Therapy (OT) helps children gain independence while also strengthening the development of fine motor skills, sensory-motor skills, and visual motor skills.
OT is also beneficial for improving sensory and vestibular processing, regulation, and integration.
Therapy may combine a variety of strategies which can help your child respond better to his/her environment. These can include:
Physical activity (swings, slides, and obstacle courses)
Play activities (stacking blocks and completing puzzles)
Self-help activities (brushing teeth/hair and washing hands)
Adaptive strategies (coping with transitions)
