Occupational Therapy

Children participate in Occupational Therapy services when they experience challenges in everyday activities, we call occupations- self-care, play, education, leisure, rest/sleep, and social participation.  Your child will first start with an Occupational Therapy evaluation to identify the underlying skills that are inhibiting and facilitating your child’s participation in their occupations.  After the evaluation, your child’s therapist will develop a treatment plan increase your child’s independence and participation in meaningful occupations.  Your child will then begin their Occupational Therapy treatment.  Your Occupational Therapist will use their expert knowledge and skills while using meaningful activities, which will often look like play, to challenge your child to develop the skills inhibiting their participation in meaningful occupations.  The Occupational Therapist may also provide recommendations, including activities to do at home between treatment sessions to continue their progress or adaptations or modifications to improve your child’s participation in meaningful occupations.
