Occupational Therapy

What is Pediatric Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy (OT) is the only profession that helps children, newborns through teenagers, do the things they want and need to do through the performance of activities required in daily life. Occupational therapists (OTs) help children and their families live life to the fullest by helping them promote health and prevent (or live better with) injury, illness, or disability. Based on a thorough evaluation, an OT at Galvin Therapy Center will develop an individualized treatment plan to treat underlying and functional deficits. The core of OT is to promote participation in everyday activities.
