What are the signs that my child may need occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy helps your child learn to carry out daily activities by developing their sensory integration and fine motor skills. From early milestones like reaching and grasping to “big kid” skills like self-feeding, dressing, and teeth brushing, occupational therapy can make a vast difference in how your child engages with the world and develops independence and self-confidence.
