What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy or treatment concentrates on helping people with a sensory, physical or cognitive disability to make them as independent as possible in all areas of their lives.Occupational Therapy can help kids in enhancing their physical, sensory and increase their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.
Few people think that this therapy is only for adults as kids, after all, do not have occupations. But a child’s main job is learning and playing and our occupational therapist analyses your kid’s school performance, daily activities and compares them with what is developmentally appropriate for that age group.
Occupational therapy is the vital part of health care for some kids because in addition to dealing with child’s physical well-being our OT therapist addresses social, psychological and environmental factors that can affect the functioning of your child in various ways.
