Pediatric Occupational Therapy
A child’s life is made up of “occupations” — daily activities such as playing, learning, and socializing.
That's why occupational therapy practitioners work with children and their families to help them succeed in activities throughout the day. Pediatric Occupational Therapists (OTs) provide rehabilitation/habilitation services for children from premature newborns to age 21.
OT promotes activities that enable children to learn and develop life skills, be creative, and enjoy and thrive in age-appropriate Activities of Daily Living (ADLs).
OTs collaborate with parents, caregivers, teachers and other allied health professionals to identify and maximize a child who experiences delays or development challenges.
