Occupational Therapy:
Occupational Therapists are professionals who evaluate and treat children and adults in order to develop and improve the skills necessary to complete activities of daily living.  Occupational therapists (OTs) help clients succeed at "the job of living".  This can be broken down into the areas of self care (eating, grooming, dressing, toileting, etc.), work (effort exerted to complete a particular task or make something) and leisure (engaging in enjoyable activities or hobbies in occupied time).  For example, an OT can work with a patient to better their grip on a pencil, help them dress themselves, or train them to eat with a fork and spoon.    Impairments in these areas may be a result of a child’s inability to obtain these skills naturally or the result of an illness or injury acquired at any stage of life (birth trauma, stroke, or neurological disease).   Our occupational therapists are skilled in treating the following:

• Activities of Daily Living (ADL) training (dressing, grooming, cooking, feeding, money management, community integration)
