What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and wellbeing through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life.
Occupational Therapy focuses on increasing independence in activity participation and facilitating age-appropriate development. This is to ensure that your child develops all the skills required to become an active participant in his/her community and lead an independent adult life.
This therapy ensures a holistic approach that looks at physical, neurological, social, cognitive, and sensory development. With comprehensive assessments, an occupational therapist can identify the physiological or cognitive challenges that lead to the challenges your child is experiencing in his/her daily life.
Occupational Therapy can aid in the following areas:
- developmental delays
- ADHD and ADD
- learning disorders
- sensory processing disorders
- autism spectrum disorder
- and others
