So we are well into the school year. The first 9 weeks have passed. How is everyone doing? Frequently at this point you and your child's teacher have been able to assess how your child is performing in the classroom and identify any problem areas. Is he/she able to focus and attend? How is his/her handwriting? Do they seem unmotivated when it comes to fine motor activities? Sometimes a child's lack of motivation is really a lack of hand strength, dexterity, and visual motor integration. Do you have concerns? Contact me and lets work through it. I want this to be a successful school year for your child!
So what is pediatric OT you might ask, or more importantly what is occupational therapy??? Occupational therapists help individuals of all ages and abilities learn or relearn the skills needed to enjoy everyday activities. Think of the activities you do everyday (shower, cook, eat, put on your clothes, drive to work/doctor/store, text on your phone, feed your baby, play soccer with your child in the backyard, care for your ailing parent, wash clothes, recreation/sports, etc). These are just a few of the areas that I as an occupational therapist consider when evaluating and treating a client. When working with children, I often assess developmental skills, handwriting/fine motor coordination, sensory processing, visual motor skills/eye-hand coordination, feeding, self-help skills, and behavioral components that may play a role. I hope this explains a little bit of the vast field of occupational therapy. In the upcoming weeks I will provide more detail about the areas I treat in pediatrics and why they are important. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions about occupational therapy!
