Pediatric Occupational Therapists work to improve children’s global development including physical, cognitive, and foundation skills such as sensory processing to assist the child and family in maximizing their success in all areas of daily life.
Occupational therapists work on children’s primary occupations: playing, learning, making friends, and being part of a family.
Pediatric Occupational Therapists work with children with autism, sensory processing disorder, fine motor and/or feeding delays, visual motor and handwriting challenges, developmental differences secondary to trauma, and much more.
