Child with Occupational Therapist at Siskin Childrens Insitute Occupational Therapy at Siskin Children's Institute

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapists can identify a child’s strengths and challenges
and set up fun and engaging ways to improve a child’s skills.

Occupational therapy helps people with their daily occupations.

Occupations are all of the important jobs a person does in a day. For children this can include playing, eating, using the bathroom, dressing, grooming, and sometimes completing school work.

Occupational Therapy

We can help your child meet their goals.

Occupational therapists can help determine what may be interfering with a child’s ability to easily perform their daily occupations. Children can have lots of different difficulties that can contribute to challenges. Sometimes they are not able to move their bodies the way they need to. Sometimes a task is difficult because the child is overwhelmed by sounds, smells or too much movement. Other times, children can move so much it interferes with their ability to do their jobs.

Occupational therapists can identify a child’s strengths and challenges and set up fun and engaging ways to improve a child’s skills.
