Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy uses exercises, activities, strategies and accommodations to help kids develop the skills they need to become more independent.
There are lots of benefits of OT for children. The sooner a child starts OT, the more effective it tends to be. Some kids learn to concentrate better and complete their schoolwork with more success through occupational therapy. Others have increased self-confidence as they learn to do more tasks on their own.
