What is Pediatric Occupational Therapy?
Since the early 1900s, occupational therapy as a field has worked to improve physical, emotional, and mental health so that clients may fully participate in all of life's activities.
What does this look like? In our pediatric occupational therapy clinic, this takes the shape of helping a child learn how to make a friend, get dressed independently, navigate a loud restaurant without a meltdown, and so much more.
We first recognize each client's unique obstacles, then guide the client through, over, or around them to live life to the fullest.
