Occupational Therapy focuses on physical, cognitive and perceptual disabilities that influence the child’s ability to perform functional tasks. The occupational therapist provides therapies designed to bring the child to the maximum level of independence in daily activities. The occupational therapist evaluates the child’s ability to use his arms, hands and fingers (fine motor skills), visual perceptual skills, cognitive functioning, hand coordination and self-care skills. The Occupational Therapist can perform splinting of the child’s arms or hands and may provide special equipment such as adaptive eating utensils, large print reading materials and dressing aids.
