Occupational Therapy

(En español: Terapia ocupacional)

Say: aw-kyoo-pay-shu-nal thair-ah-pee

Do you know what your occupation is? As a kid, your job is to play, learn, and grow up to take care of yourself. It's hard for some kids to do everyday things like write, eat, or get dressed, but occupational therapy can help. Occupational therapists come up with creative ways to help kids who have physical disabilities or other challenges. If a kid has trouble eating, the therapist can provide special forks and spoons that are longer, shorter, or have easy-to-hold rubber grips. If a kid needs help with writing, the therapy might be strengthening the pointer finger by finger painting or squirting a water gun! With occupational therapy, there are many ways to get the job done!
