What is OT?
Occupational Therapists (OTs) address "skills for the job of living". For children/teens, some of these include:
fine motor skills (including handwriting)
sensory processing skills
Mastering these skills enable children to participate in the “occupations” of their lives:
relationships with others
OTs are specially trained to provide a "just right challenge" to maximize progress AND success. This promotes a positive sense of self, which is critical for future independence, and social and emotional wellness.
