Occupational therapy treatment focuses on helping people be as independent as possible in all areas of their lives. A child’s primary job is to play, learn, and experience the world. Occupational Therapists evaluate children’s abilities based on these areas and attend to their specific needs to what is developmentally appropriate.
Areas that occupational therapy can address, but are not limited to are:
- Behavioral issues (anxiousness & emotional/self regulation)
- Sensory processing
- Developmental delays
- Fine motor skills & handwriting
- Hand-eye coordination & other visual motor skills
This is a video about Occupational Therapy and how we work on areas of need at Milestones.
