                     What is
Occupational Therapy?

           Occupational Therapy (OT) is a health
    care profession that helps individuals with
    disabilities achieve their maximum level of
    independence in all areas of daily living,
    including work, play, self care and school.  
    Occupational therapists work in a variety of
    treatment settings including hospitals, nursing
    homes, outpatient clinics and schools, to name
    a few.  The information in this website is
    focused on OT services for preschool and
    school aged children.

           In the school setting, occupational
    therapists focus on the daily occupations of
    school life.  They work with students who have
    disabilities to achieve success in the
    classroom and across all school environments.  
    Specifically, therapists help students develop
    fine motor skills, visual motor (eye-hand
    coordination) skills, sensory regulation and
    physical access to help make learning and
    participation possible.
