Occupational Therapists (OTs) believe that an occupation is anything that you need, want, or are expected to do in your day. For kids, this is often playing, being social, and learning. I coach families and provide direct treatment for daily living skills (dressing, toileting, feeding, sleep), productivity (accommodations for school, skills related to learning), and leisure (playing with friends, riding a bike, climbing the monkey bars). OTs are client-centred - we work on the things that you and your family want to work on.
Making connections with clients and families is very important to me. When we are connected, the work doesn't have to feel like work. I strongly believe in play and that we can build skills and reach our goals without the stuffy table and chair activities.
