What is Occupational Therapy (OT)?

It is a treatment that focuses on assisting children with physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities to become as independent as possible in their everyday life and activities. An occupational therapist will evaluate a child’s ability and skills in areas such as playing, school performance, and everyday activities; and then compare them to developmentally appropriate skills for their age group.

According to the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), in addition to dealing with someone’s physical well-being, OT practitioners address psychological, social, and environmental factors that can affect functioning in different ways. Making OT a vital part of some children’s health care.
