Occupational Therapy is the identification and treatment of any physical, emotional or social problems that affect the person’s functioning by using a variety of activities.
In children, it is especially the identification of early developmental problems, either large or small motor, perceptual or cognitive or sensory.
Treatment takes place by means of play activities, which again involve big motor activities, perceptual activities or creative activities.
With parents, children included reading, spelling and arithmetic.
Special techniques are also used in therapy to promote and support stimulation and development.
