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, coordinating movements in play just to name a few.  So an Occupational Therapist focuses on assessing and treating the issues of fine motor, sensory processing, visual motor, integration skills, ocular motor skills and motor planning that may interfere with the success of their work.  Interventions may include adapting 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.
