Our team shares a common goal to provide the highest quality services for our clients and their families.
What is Occupational Therapy?
The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable children to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational Therapy helps children to overcome obstacles and to be as independent as possible. All children have specific roles that they play in life such as being a family member, student or sporting team member.
Occupational Therapists provide children with fun, positive activities to help them improve their cognitive and motor skills to become more independent in the activities of their daily lives.
The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable children to participate in the activities of everyday life.
Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling children and families to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation.
