The work of children is ‘play’ as well as self-care skills. This is their occupation. Activities included in a child’s occupation may include writing, dressing, cutting, washing hands, using utensils, manipulating toys and coordinating movements in play, just to name a few. Therefore, an Occupational Therapist will focus on assessing and treating the issues that may interfere with the success of a child’s work, including:
- Fine Motor Skills
- Sensory Processing
- Visual Motor Skills
- Integration Skills
- Ocular Motor Skills
- Motor Planning
Interventions may include adapting to an environment, modifying a task or teaching a specific skill. Education of therapeutic techniques used for the family is critical in order to carry over and maintain achievement of goals.
The goal of Occupational Therapy is to increase function and independence for children.
