What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy includes all the activities that occupy people’s time and give meaning to their daily lives. For young children, these activities can be as small as tying a shoe, or playing catch.

Address and treat visual motor integration disorders.
Address self-care skills.
Work on social and peer interaction skills.
Address feeding concerns and help to introduce new foods and textures to broaden diet.
Provide education to caregivers.
Consult with other professionals regarding the role of occupational therapy and how it can improve the child’s daily life.
Collaborate with caregivers and child to create effective carry-over from the therapy session to home.
