What is occupational therapy for kids?
According to the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), occupational therapy (OT) helps your child “do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities.”
This includes structured play and sensory integration to help many kids do things with more focus and ease. In other words, OT helps your child solve problems, become independent, and interact with others their age!
Occupational therapists (OTs) also work with kids when tasks in early learning don’t come so easily. Whether it’s holding a pencil, putting together a puzzle, or walking up and down stairs, OT supports learning those skills that become the basis of learning other things as your child grows.
And since every child is unique, every treatment plan must also be unique. OT is an evidence-based practice that applies research and a science-driven approach to your child’s therapeutic needs. This helps your OT evaluate your child with proven methods, and develop a plan that benefits them in specific ways.
