Occupational therapy treatment focuses on helping people with a physical, sensory, or cognitive disability be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives. OT can help kids with various needs improve their cognitive, physical, sensory, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment. 

OTs work with children on the following skills:

  • Sensory processing

  • Cognitive endurance

  • Fine motor skills

  • Hand function

  • Visual-spatial awareness

  • Hand-eye coordination

  • Attention

  • Social skills

  • Body awareness

Occupational therapists often educate parents and teachers on the best techniques to ensure children participate in learning, self-care, and play tasks.
