Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Pediatric occupational therapists (OT) work with children with special needs in outpatient and acute care settings. OTs collaborate with children and their families to promote development and gain independence in areas of daily living, education, play, leisure, and social participation. Through the use of play, we aid in the development of the skills children need to be kids! These skills include, but are not limited to: fine motor, gross motor, coordination, visual motor, visual perceptual, sensory processing, handwriting, feeding, and self-care skills.

Conditions that may benefit from OT intervention include, but are not limited to:
