According to the American Occupational Therapy Association,Inc, “Occupational therapy practitioners ask, “What matters to you?” not, “What’s the matter with you?”In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.” We know for a fact that a child’s occupational therapists can help with developmental delays, improve fine motor skills, increase strength after sugery or an accident, but most of all we know it can give a child an increase in self esteem and confidence. We are so proud to have some excellent Occupational Therapists at VIVA Pediatrics. If your child is in need of therapy, please feel free to contact our office at 469-341-7772. We are happy to help.
