Occupational Therapy Expert

Occupational therapy (OT) is an area of health care that helps people of all ages with physical, sensory and cognitive problems. OT helps children to play better, improves school performance and helps with daily activities. With an occupational therapist, barriers that affect a person’s emotional, social, physical and everyday activities can be overcome through therapy. Some regain their independence in all areas of life.

Develop fine motor skills to grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting skills. Improve eye-hand coordination during the game, which is needed in school for skills such as hitting the ball or copying on a blackboard.

Master basic life skills such as bathing, dressing, brushing your teeth and self-feeding. Learn positive behavior and social skills and practice dealing with frustration and anger. Special equipment to build independence.

Occupational therapists work in hospitals, schools, rehabilitation centres, psychiatric institutions and private practices. You have a 4-year bachelor’s degree in biology, psychology or health sciences or a master’s degree from a recognized occupational therapy program. OTs and their monitoring field research programs must pass a national certification exam. Like physiotherapy, occupational therapy can improve the quality of life of children without distinction.

Contact a nearby hospital or rehabilitation centre for a referral. Talk to a school nurse or counsellor. Visit the American Occupational Therapy Associations website for occupational therapy associations.
