Will my child benefit from occupational therapy?
Occupational therapists working within a pediatric setting will utilize their expertise to assist children in acquiring the necessary functional skills required to engage in every day tasks such as learning, playing and self care skills. Occupational therapists also provide specialized interventions to encourage the development of social and motor planning skills needed to perform within a child’s home, school and community settings. Sometimes our children experience challenges in obtaining these skills on their path to adulthood. As parents, we labor to provide our children with the means to reach their full potential. Occupational therapy can help you and your child achieve these goals based on your responses to the following questions:
- Has your child met developmental milestones on time?
- Does your child play well with others?
- Is your child able to dress him or herself?
- Does your child have difficulty with snaps, buttons, or zippers?
- How long can your child maintain their attention on one task at home?
- Is your child able to complete their morning routine without difficulty?
- Can your child make up games to play?
- Does your child have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night?
- Does your child engage in imaginary play?
- Is your child aware of his or her surroundings within community settings such as a park or at a shopping center?
- Can your child use utensils to feed him or herself appropriately?
- Is your child disruptive, impulsive or do they experience difficulties remaining focused on an activity for prolonged periods of time?
- Is your child resistant to any changes in routine or when introduced to new activities?
- Does your child have difficulty regulating their emotions?
