Pediatric Occupational Therapy in Chicago
Pediatric occupational therapy is a mystery to most. Many people might ask: “My child does not have an occupation, why would my child need OT?” However, your child does in fact have an occupation… to play, learn, grow, and develop!
Many times, this just occurs naturally but other times a child benefits from support to make progress and gains. Occupational therapy’s focus areas include fine motor development, daily routines, and sensory processing. Pediatric occupational therapists help children engage in everyday occupations and daily routines. Specific target areas include sensory processing and development, physical development, emotional development, and adaptive development.
Pediatric occupational therapists
Pediatric occupational therapists collaborate and work hand in hand with families to create a treatment plan specific to a child’s needs. Our goal is to assist the child and the whole family. Occupational therapists’ partner with parents, teachers, caregivers and more to assist with making gains.
Pediatric Occupational Therapists (OT) and OT Assistants (OTA) must first obtain a degree in Occupational Therapy. All Occupational Therapists (OTs) at Blossom Therapy have a master’s degree or doctorate degree. All Occupational Therapist Assistants (OTAs) at Blossom Therapy have an associate degree and over ten years of pediatric experience. Being an OT or OTA involves years of schooling, internships, and licensure.
