Occupational Therapy helps children improve their skills and become more independent. Occupational Therapists work to help children with their sensory integration skills, cognitive abilities, fine motor skills, and visual motor skills. If a child is having difficulty with a daily activity, an OT can help! These may include things like: Fine Motor Skills: finger strength to point to pictures in a book, push buttons on a remote, learn to write, grasp objects. Executive functioning: getting organized, remembering assignments, understanding the order of tasks to be done Self-Regulation: how to manage your body under stressful circumstances Feeding: accepting different food textures or allowing different smells and tastes to be near Visual Motor Skills: how the eyes are tracking information, visual fixations, and attention
