A Holistic Approach to Wellness
What is occupational therapy and how can it help my child? Occupation refers to anything that 'occupies' our time. Occupational Therapists focus on occupation as the driving force for assessment, intervention and goal setting. Children often thrive in some occupations yet require a flexible approach to help them succeed at others. This may include handwriting, balancing, gross motor skills like playing games such as catch or football. Daily self care skills such as dressing and washing, or they may struggle to concentrate and focus at school often getting called naughty or lazy. Every day we all engage in numerous occupations, some come naturally to us and some we have to work harder at or focus a bit more, it is no different for children.
