Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy (OT) applies to the activities of children. These professionals assist with promoting independence in everyday life. Pediatric OTs see children from birth to age 18 for a variety of issues, such as developmental delays due to premature birth, ADD/ADHD, Autism, and struggles with reading and writing among other things.

The Occupational therapist can help with:

  • Fine motor skills – finger dexterity, wrist and forearm control, and hand strength
  • Gross motor skills – balance and body coordination
  • Self-care tasks – dressing, bathing, and self-feeding
  • Social skills – taking turns, listening, and following directions
  • Emotion regulation – helping kids understand and process emotions
  • Sensory processing – receiving information obtained through the five senses
