Pediatric Occupational Therapy
Each year occupational therapy enables people of all ages live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, prevent–or live better with–injury, illness or disability. Nearly one-third of occupational therapists work with children, according to The American Occupational Therapy Association, helping them master the “occupations” of childhood learning, playing and growing.
Mercy’s pediatric occupational therapists focus on helping children–from newborn to 18–develop skills for the job of living that will allow them to lead independent, productive and satisfying lives. Occupational therapists are passionate about helping children get beyond problems to the solutions that assure living life to its fullest. These solutions may be adaptations for how to do a task, changes to the surroundings, or helping individuals to alter their behaviors.
