Occupational Therapy (OT)

Pediatric

The goal of pediatric occupational therapy (OT) is to develop skills or help build on strengths to enhance an individual's participation in daily activities. Occupational therapists work with children and adults of all ages and with a wide range of conditions relating to mental and physical health as well as development and learning. OT evaluations and interventions are holistic, meaning they explore all aspects of an individual's being - child development (physical, cognitive, emotional, social), environments (home, school, playground), and societal contexts. When injury, illness, disability, or other problems limit a person’s ability to engage in the activities that are important to them, occupational therapists help to solve problems, facilitate recovery, and minimize barriers. OT intervention may involve assessment, consultation, home therapy programming, and/or support sessions for parents, caregivers, and teachers. Strategies, suggestions, tools, and education are provided with the goal of improving or enhancing participation in activities that are meaningful to the individual. 

Adult

“Occupational therapy intervention uses everyday life activities (occupations) to promote health, well-being, and your ability to participate in important activities in life. This includes any meaningful activity that a person wants to accomplish, including taking care of yourself and your family, working, volunteering, going to school, among many others” (AOTA, 2024).
