Occupational Therapy specializes in helping people participate in roles and activities of daily living. A child must be able to function in home, school and community environments. The occupational therapist will assess the motor development, visual, sensory and fine motor components that impact successful participation. This presentation provides general information on pediatric specific areas that an occupational therapist may address as well as the difference between medically based and school based occupational therapy.
