Occupational Therapy for Kids

 

A child’s main job is playing and learning. An occupational therapist can evaluate a child’s skills for play activities, school performance, and activities of daily living and compare them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group. Occupational therapists address psychological, social, and environmental factors that might be hindering a child’s function. This unique approach makes occupational therapy a vital part of health care for many children.
