Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists help individuals participate in meaningful activities that occupy their time.  They evaluate and address factors within one’s body, mind, and environment to work toward goals set with clients.  For children, areas that can be addressed are school participation, fine motor abilities, play participation, social skills, and activities of daily living such as eating, grooming, toileting, and dressing.
