More and more parents with developmental concerns for their children are turning to Pediatric Occupational Therapist for help. Occupational therapists are able to help develop the central nervous system, eliminating the need to use medication for treating a number of developmental issues. Medication should be the last resort when it comes to treating behavioral issues in children.
What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy, or OT, is a way to help treat developmental issues through the use of everyday activities. Most people do not realize the effectiveness of occupational therapy as a way to treat problems with development such as:
- Delays in motor skills
- Problems in Speech, Reading, Writing and Math
- And other developmental concerns
What makes Occupational Therapy so effective in dealing with developmental problems is that this practice makes use of things and activities that are already familiar to the patient. A therapist uses different activities and tools to address different developmental concerns. Everyday objects such as balls, boards, pens and scissors are used to help train the child’s fine motor skills and balance. What this does essentially is the patient is slowly eased into a normal way of life without making use of chemicals.
