Occupational Therapists can help with
- Fine motor skills
- Sensory Processing
- Emotional Regulation; processing and handling emotions
- Learning Social Skills
- Being more independent in self-care activities like dressing, eating, toileting, etc.
Occupational Therapists use fun, play based activities to help kids of all ages and a variety of diagnoses to be able to participate in and be more independent in all of their daily activities. Occupational Therapists are awesome, if you see one today, give them a high five and tell them how wonderful they are!
