Occupational therapy addresses a child’s occupation using purposeful, play activities to develop the skills they need to function in areas of play, socialization, daily living skills, and school. Occupational therapists treat children with physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities to be as independent as possible in all areas of their life. Occupational therapy specifically addresses skills including fine motor development, motor planning, sensory processing, motor skills, visual motor skills, coordination, organization, and daily living activities.
