What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy aids in the development of skills that support engagement in everyday life activities that support health, well-being, and quality of life of people. Occupational Therapists (OTs) use a variety of therapy techniques that develop the individual's fine motor skills, visual-perceptual readiness, cognitive abilities, and attention span. These services could be needed if a child is suffering from cases including but not limited to birth defects, developmental delays, learning problems, and broken bones.
