Pediatric occupational therapy helps children develop the skills they need to achieve independence in their everyday occupations.  A child’s occupations include play, learning, feeding, and self-care activities.  In order to develop independence in these occupations a child may have to improve their skills in the areas of:

  • hand strength
  • oral motor skills
  • body strength
  • motor coordination 
  • sensory motor skills
  • grasping
  • eye-hand coordination
