About Occupational Therapy
Occupational Therapy (OT) is a health care profession that focuses on helping individuals to achieve independence in all areas of their lives; specifically self care, productivity and leisure. Children's productivity is play and learning, both of which are crucial for development. When a child's ability is affected as a result of injury, illness, disability or disease, an Occupational Therapist can evaluate the child's skills for daily activities, school performance and self care activities and compare them to what is developmentally appropriate for an age group. Treatment is focused on improving a child's skill level to meet those of peers.
