Occupational Therapy

IMG_5611.JPG

Occupational Therapy (sometimes referred to as OT) is a type of therapy that is needed when a person has physical, sensory, or cognitive problems. OT can help a child to gain independence in all areas of their lives. 

Therapists use everyday activities, exercises, and other fun therapies to help with the barriers that affect a child's emotional, social, and physical needs. 

Occupational Therapy can also help boost a child's self esteem and sense of accomplishment. 

Here at KidSPOT we make sure each and every therapy session feels like play time. Our therapists do this by participating in motivating activities such as board games, crafts, and building obstacle courses, so that children are developing skills while having fun! Occupational therapists help children develop these necessary physical, cognitive, and sensory skills so they can perform daily tasks more independently.
