FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
WHAT IS OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY?
Occupational therapy refers to what one does throughout the life span to “occupy” their time. These occupations include work, school, self-care, and play/leisure activities. Occupational therapy focuses on the relationship between the cognitive, motor, social, emotional, and sensory functioning that allow a person to perform the daily activities that are necessary in their life.
For children, their occupation includes play, school, self-care, and socialization. Play is a vital skill that impacts every aspect of development. It is through play that children learn about their bodies and the environment. In typically developing children, this process occurs naturally. For children with neurological impairments, the interaction between the child and their environment does not occur naturally and therefore, all aspects of development are impacted. A child then has difficulty functioning successfully in school, play, and self-care. The role of occupational therapy for children with neurological impairment is to facilitate appropriate interaction between the child and their environment.
