Understanding Pediatric Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) helps those that may need extra help in developing the fine motor, visual motor and sensory motor skills related to activities of daily living.


A Pediatric Occupational Therapist evaluates a child’s skills based on what is developmentally appropriate for their particular age group, as they apply to play, school success, life skills and day-to-day activities.


Specifically focusing on helping children with a cognitive, physical or sensory disability to develop their skills, a Pediatric OT works to build on a child’s self-esteem and foster a sense of accomplishment. Playing and learning are a child’s full-time job, and by using play to promote development of these motor skills, children gain independence that will carry them through childhood and into adulthood with the tools they need to thrive.
