The term occupation refers to activities that occupy your time. For kids, the most important areas of occupation include play, school, and activities of daily living (dressing, eating, bathing). The goal of pediatric occupational therapy is to support kids and their families to be as independent as possible in the things they do every day. Occupational therapy sessions are individualized based on the learner’s needs but commonly focus on fine motor skills, visual motor skills, motor coordination, motor planning, and sensory processing to help your child participate in everyday life.
A comprehensive occupational therapy evaluation and assessment will take place before treatment begins with each client. This process will help the occupational therapists learn each client’s strengths and needs and gather as much information as possible to support their functional participation in everyday activities.
Each occupational therapy session is tailored to the needs of the individual client. These sessions are typically addressed through play and involve both gym-based and table-based activities. The number and length of sessions will be determined by the occupational therapist and vary based on the learner’s needs. As with all disciplines, your child would receive home programming to promote carryover and progression of the skills addressed.
