Occupational Therapy for kids
Would my child benefit from it?What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy helps children to do what they need to do and want to do. OT looks not only at the child, but what they do (their ‘occupations’) and how they do it. Your OT will work with you and your child to encourage success in a meaningful way. Don’t be surprised when you discover that most of the therapy will be play-based. OT’s love to play because not only is it fun, but because it’s what kids do! Your OT will get to know your child, what they like, what they don’t, and incorporate this into the therapy to make it meaningful and easy for you and your child.
Occupational therapy is always a ‘team effort’. As much as your OT will work with your child, it’s about what you do at home to reinforce the strategies. You can expect to learn and grow as a parent, and work with your child to foster self-confidence, knowledge and independence.
A lot of people ask ‘what is occupational therapy?’, and the easiest response is ‘we do a bit of everything!’. If you and your child have a goal, 9 out of 10 times, an OT can work with you to achieve success.
