Occupational therapists assist children to take part in everyday activities at home, day care or elsewhere by building up the child’s skills and considering modifications to the child’s environment. Occupational therapists can target play skills, physical skills, sensory/ behavior issues and daily living tasks such as feeding and dressing.
