Occupational Therapy is the work done by Occupational therapists (OTs) with children who, due to sensory, coordination or behavioural issues, experience difficulties in any one or more of the following areas:
- Achieving independence in personal activities of daily living i.e. feeding, un/dressing and bathing;

Intervention by OTs is done through an evidence based, individualised approach that maximises the child’s potential.
