Occupational therapists can:

  • help kids work on fine motor skills so they can grasp and release toys and develop good handwriting skills

  • address hand–eye coordination to improve kids' play and school skills (hitting a target, batting a ball, copying from a blackboard, etc.)

  • help kids learn basic tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves)

  • help kids  maintain positive behaviors in all environments (e.g., instead of hitting others or acting out, using positive ways to deal with anger, such as writing about feelings or participating in a physical activity)

  • teach kids the coordination skills needed to feed themselves, use a computer, or increase the speed and legibility of their handwriting

  • work with kids who have sensory and attentional issues to improve focus and social skills

  • Improve nutrition by decreasing food sensitivities
