Occupational therapists aim to enhance your child’s ability to participate in everyday tasks. They consider physical, sensory and thinking skills for independent living.

They can also help your child with:

  • Fine motor skills for handling small objects or handwriting
  • Widening the range of meaningful activities your child is able to engage in
  • Greater social participation and play skills
  • Greater independence in more complex activities such as homework planning or money management (for older children)
  • Building tolerance to sensory stimulating activities such as washing hair, cutting fingernails, eating a variety of food textures, tolerating loud or background noises.

Occupational therapy can improve access to various educational settings, local community and family life.
