Occupational Therapy works toward helping children perform meaningful activities of daily life such as:
1. Self-care skills including feeding and dressing
2. Visual and fine-motor skills including purposeful manipulation of objects using age-appropriate grasp, pre-writing/writing and using scissors, reproducing designs and copying patterns
3. Sensory processing skills including tolerating stimuli (sounds, smells, tastes or textures, sights and touch) that commonly occur in a child’s environment
4. Social skills including being able to connect with peers and adults in play, home and school settings
*Children who are showing a delay in developing age-appropriate milestones.
*Children who have any disorder or disease process that is limiting them from accomplishing everyday tasks in their environments.
*Children who have sensory processing dysfunction.
