How Does Occupational Therapy Help Your Child?
At ot4kids, whilst building relationships with families using a holistic approach, this is what children and families we work with have achieved:
- Reach their developmental milestones (rolling, sitting, crawling, walking, jumping, hopping, writing, shoe tying)
- Improve their upper body strength and stamina to sit upright or play sports
- Develop balance and coordination skills to play at the park
- Acquire fine motor skills so they can write, cut, eat, craft, build and get dressed
- Develop motor planning and problem-solving skills to do new activities, play with friends and learn
- Be confident and focused
- Learn how their body feels during different emotions and what tools can help them become calm, focused, and connected
- Increase repertoire of foods they’re comfortable eating
All children develop at different rates. If your child does not meet key developmental milestones, early intervention is key to prevent problems from escalating and to get started on developing new skills.
