Occupational therapy (OT) uses meaningful activities to develop, restore, and adapt skills for people to fully participate in everyday life.
With children, meaningful every day activities include play, school participation, movement activities, self-cares, engaging in community outings and more. Occupational therapists who work with children focus on developing the skills necessary for these activities. At Foundations Therapy, the focus is not on rote practice of skills, but instead targeting the underlying issues.
Occupational therapy sessions at Foundations Therapy are often very play-based and child-centered. This keeps the child motivated, open to new challenges, and helps them achieve more success.
