Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT):  OTs help promote fine motor skills, feeding skills and dressing skills.  Children with limited diets secondary to texture aversions, behavioral issues, allergies, or physical limitations can be addressed with the assistance of an OT. Another area of concentration for OTs is Sensory Integration, defined as “the neurological process that organizes sensation from one’s own body and the environment, thus making it possible to use the body effectively within the environment” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sensory_integration).
