Occupational Therapy addresses fine motor skills or smaller movements such as reaching and grasping.  Mobility, perceptual motor skills, sensory integration, psychosocial skills, cognitive development, and functional abilities such as feeding, dressing, bathing and play skills are incorporated. 

The occupational therapist assesses the child’s performance to develop and implement a treatment plan to address these needs.  Adaptation of tools, materials and activities to enhance developmental and functional abilities according to the child and family’s needs are instrumental to progress.

The occupational therapist provides on-going family education and works closely with other team members to facilitate a transdisciplinary approach to intervention.
