What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy is an area of health care focused on helping people with sensory, physical, and cognitive disabilities develop skills that allow them to be as independent as possible. The American Occupational Therapy Association defines an occupational therapist as someone who “helps people across their lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).
Though occupational therapy provides care for people of all ages, the occupational therapists at Can Do Kids Pediatric Therapy Services specialize in pediatric occupational therapy. The experienced team works closely with each child and their families to help them develop skills that allow them to reach their optimal potential.
Our therapists take a unique approach to care, evaluating your child’s ability to regulate their nervous system, sensory processing abilities, visual system, reflexes, and capacity for social engagement. This approach allows the team to better understand your child’s world and why they experience the challenges they do, which is essential for developing a well-rounded therapy program specific to your child’s needs.
How can children benefit from occupational therapy?
Our team at Can Do Kids helps many children. Your child may benefit from occupational therapy if they’re struggling with:
- Playing with others
- Participating at school or in other social environments

The team has experience helping children with many common developmental conditions, including developmental delays, autism, sensory processing disorder, anxiety, and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
