Occupational Therapists (OTs) help children to be successful with playing, learning, being comfortable in their own bodies and being successful with others around them. They provide strategies for:
- Fine motor skills – using hands to manipulate tools in play or for writing
- Daily living skills – getting dressed, eating, hygiene and toileting
- Sensory or regulatory needs – making sense of the information received through the five senses as well as through movement and balance
- Visual-motor skills – eye-hand coordination for activities such as pre-printing and puzzles
