Pediatric occupational therapy is a type of therapy that focuses on helping children develop the skills they need to participate in everyday activities. This type of therapy can help children improve their fine motor, gross motor, sensory, cognitive, and social-emotional skills.

You should consider pediatric occupational therapy if your child is experiencing any of the following:

  1. Difficulty with hand-eye coordination, such as catching a ball or tying their shoes

  2. Poor handwriting or difficulty with cutting and drawing

  3. Delayed gross motor skills, such as crawling, walking, or running

  4. Sensory processing difficulties, such as being overly sensitive or under-responsive
    to sensory input

  5. Trouble with attention, focus, and organization

  6. Difficulty with self-care skills, such as dressing, grooming, and using the bathroom

  7. Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, or other developmental disorders.

If you have concerns about your child's ability to participate in daily activities or if you notice that they are not meeting age-appropriate milestones, it's always best to speak with a pediatrician or a pediatric occupational therapist to determine if occupational therapy could benefit your child. Early intervention can greatly improve a child's overall development and quality of life.
