A Paediatric OT focuses on improving your child’s participation and engagement in their everyday occupations. They evaluate the environment, sensory processing, postural control, motor planning and other areas to determine the underlying cause of the problem. Once the cause is identified, the therapist works on these underlying areas of need to improve their foundation skills.
