What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapists (OTs) works with clients to help them achieve what they not only need to do in their lives, but also what they want to do. In this way, OT focuses heavily on 'meaningful occupation' (activities that are meaningful to the client). Your OT will work with you to achieve your individual goals; no matter what level of ability you have. The main focus areas that OT's can help with when working with children are:
One of the most important areas - as children learn through play! How to lose, improving imagination and independent play skills.
Managing time, organising belonings, problem solving, planning, improving focus and attention (especially on non-preferred tasks!).
