Can an occupational therapists help our family?
children may appear anxious, angry, inattentive, withdrawn and/or the
child might "meltdown" frequently because their sensory system is not
functioning properly. A child's sensory system takes in sight, sound,
smell, taste, touch and movement input from their environment. When a
child's body over or under registers that input, the child can benefit
from an occupational therapist (OT) who is trained in sensory
processing disorders. An OT can also help your child with feeding issues (picky
eater), motor planning/praxis (clumsy child), fine motor skills
(handwriting, shoe tying, dressing) and perceptual skills (puzzles,
mazes and reading).
