Pediatric Occupational Therapy
What is Pediatric Occupational Therapy?
A child’s job or occupation is to play, be independent in self-care activities, and succeed in school. Pediatric occupational therapists treat children with disorders that may inhibit their ability to be successful in these areas. An occupational therapist will address this by teaching fine motor activities (how to hold and manipulate objects), visual-motor activities (eye hand coordination), activities to increase upper body strength and endurance, teach the body how to appropriately react to sensory information and self-care skills.
