Occupational Therapy

What is Occupational Therapy?
An Occupational Therapists' primary goal is to support children to participate in their activities of daily living. For children, this may mean helping to support and implement strategies to enable children to use their cognitive, physical, sensory, fine and gross motor and regulation skills to the best of their ability. All of which help children to achieve success their way, and build functional capacity and participation in those activities children enjoy most and those that are necessary for daily life. The occupational therapists at SPOT help children to understand their own needs and parents to understand their child's needs and advocate for accomodations where needed.
