Pediatric occupational therapy

Also known as: Occupational therapy, pediatric

Occupational therapy helps people live as independently as possible. Occupational therapists work with people of all ages who, because of illness, injury, developmental delays or psychological problems, need help learning skills that can allow them to live more independent, productive and satisfying lives. Occupational therapists use work, self-care and recreational activities to increase independent function.

The pediatric occupational therapists at Providence Children's Development Institute specialize in motor skill development, sensory integration, visual motor integration/perception, and attention and behavioral organization. These abilities will increase your child's ability to function more independently in everyday activities, such as play, self-care, handwriting and feeding.
