Occupational therapy can help people of all ages perform activities of daily living (ADLs) This includes children who struggle with everyday tasks like using a toothbrush, handwriting and/ or dressing. Occupational therapy for children can lead to big benefits, especially for kids with learning difficulties, attention issues, , self-regulationsensory processing issues and improvement of fine motor skills

Living Strength OT uses a scientific approach to provide the best occupational therapy interventions available. As part of a holistic approach with the parent or the child’s guardian, these interventions consider the motor skills of the child, their activity demands, home environments, and their routines and habits.

Our Occupational therapist may work with children on many different activities, here are some examples:

  • Self-care or activities of daily living (brushing teeth, buttoning clothes, using eating utensils)
  • Hand-eye coordination (writing on a classroom whiteboard, copying in a notebook what the teacher writes on the board)
  • Fine motor skills (grasping and controlling a pencil, using scissors)
  • Gross motor skills (doing jumping jacks, working on core muscle strength for sitting posture)
  • Planning and organization (helping a teen plan a trip to his locker to swap books or gym clothes for the next class period, using a graphic organizer for writing)
  • Sensory responses (helping kids with sensory processing issues respond to sensory input in more comfortable ways)
