Occupational Therapy is a medical discipline that can benefit people of all ages. The focus of Occupational Therapy is to improve the activities of daily life including self-care, career, education, and social interactions. Occupational Therapy services cover a variety of specializations such as workplace and home assessments, impairments of the upper extremity (hands to shoulders), caregiver/family education and pediatrics.
Pediatric Occupational Therapy focuses on children in their environment. Play is often used to improve sensory motor skills, allowing children to better input from the surroundings. By improving play skills, the child is better suited to improve learning skills. During an occupational therapy session, the therapist will focus on issues dealing with body coordination and the vestibular system, which is responsible for equilibrium and balance.
At RAS Therapy Care, we have Occupational Therapists that work with adults as well as Occupational Therapists that focus specifically on children.
