Pediatric Occupational Therapy

It may seem strange to use the word occupation when talking about a child's rehabilitation. Occupations for children are the events of daily living, such as eating, playing, getting dressed or simply interacting with others.

The Occupational Therapists (OTs) at Children's Hospital observe and evaluate how your child performs in everyday contexts. Our treatments focus on helping your child develop or regain skills and tasks necessary for the "job" of living. We want your child to function as independently as possible through exercises and task-related activities that we disguise as play.

Skills we address include:

  • Fine muscle movements
  • Visual-motor
  • Visual-perceptual
  • Sensory processing
  • Oral-motor

We require a medical referral from a physician or nurse practitioner to schedule an appointment for these therapy services. Fax referrals to (615) 343-0506.
