What is OT?

Occupational Therapists (OT) provide treatment to address the "skills for the job of living". For children, these skills are the ability to play, perform basic self-care tasks, exercise age appropriate self-regulation, socialize with their peers and adults, and participate in learning activities.  OTs working with children focus on fine motor skills, sensory skills, visual/perceptual skills, socialization and life skills, and hand-writing, in order to enable children to participate fully in their life. OT's are specially trained to provide a "just right challenge" for each child through a breakdown of activities into manageable components. This allows each child to experience success, as well as make progress, in order to achieve their goals.
