Occupational therapy for children aims to provide assessments and treatments to children with a developmental delay in their ability to perform daily functional activities independently.
Occupational therapists provide intervention and/or strategies to the child and their family for both home and school environments to overcome challenges. This means working on skills such as fine and gross motor skills, self-care tasks, attention and sensory processing skills to promote independence in activities.
Areas of concern:
Self-care tasks (including change clothes, maintain personal hygiene)
Gross motor skills (including running, biking, jumping, swimming and ball skills)
Fine motor skills (including handwriting, colouring, and use of utensils, scissors and toiletries)
Visual perception for reading, writing, math calculation and finding items
Paying attention and concentration
Sensitivity and defensiveness
