Fun. Therapeutic. Interactive.

What is OT?

Occupational Therapists (OTs) address "skills for the job of living". For children, some of these skills are:

  • fine motor skills (including handwriting)

  • sensory skills

  • visual/perceptual skills

  • socialization and life skills

  • self-regulation

Mastering these skills enable children to participate in the “occupations” of their lives:

  • play

  • self-care activities

  • schooling

  • socializing with peers and adults

OTs are specially trained to provide a "just right challenge" to maximize progress AND success, which promotes positive sense of self.
