What is Occupational Therapy?

Our daily occupations are those activities that "occupy" our time. Occupational therapy is the treatment that aids individuals in performing their daily activities. For a child, daily occupations or activities include learning, social interactions, and playing. The participation in these occupations is vital to maintaining a child’s overall physical and mental wellbeing. Pediatric Occupational Therapy helps to optimize a child’s everyday life functions so that he/she can more appropriately and efficiently engage in the occupation of childhood.
