What exactly is Outpatient Pediatric Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy is often a confusing term when it is used in reference to children, as it implies that it deals with those in a job or occupation. In fact, your child’s growth is dependent on the development of the very skills that enable them to be independent in their day to day activities. As a vital part of teli’s Outpatient Rehabilitation Services, our Pediatric Occupational Therapists work to create fun and impactful activities to improve their lives and interactions with others.
Some examples of the types of Pediatric Occupational Therapy utilized to address challenges include:
- Motor skills to help with limited gross or fine movement
- Visual perceptual skills that address limited hand-eye coordination
- Activities of Daily Living (ADL’s) or self-care
- Sensory motor activities including coordination, timing and motor planning
- Sensory processing skills that limit a child’s ability to complete day-to day activities and interaction with others
- Fine motor and oral motor skills for eating
