therapist can help kids who have trouble doing everyday things, like writing,
eating, or getting dressed. An occupational therapist uses exercises and activities
to teach kids how to do these things better. 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! Just don't squirt
your occupational therapist!
