More and more parents who have concerns for their child’s development are turning to Pediatric Occupational Therapists 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.
Occupational Therapy, or OT, is an effective way to help treat developmental problems through the use of everyday familiar activities. Problems such as:
- Delays in motor skills
- Problems in Speech, Reading, Writing and Math
- And other developmental concerns
New Jersey Pediatric Occupational Therapy Practice
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 using every objects that they are already familiar with, and without making use of chemicals.
