OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY STAFF

“OT focuses on helping people achieve independence in all areas of their lives. With pediatric OT it gets confusing for parents because so much of what we do in OT is based on a person’s “occupations,” or their meaningful daily tasks. When you work with children, their main occupations include play. Many times it looks like we are just playing around, but I swear, it’s with a purpose. In the classroom setting, OT helps students with various needs to improve their cognitive, physical, and motor skills to maximize their ability to function in school to achieve their educational goals.”
