Children who have experienced injuries, illnesses, or disabilities preventing them from living their lives to their fullest potential can greatly benefit from the assistance of an Occupational Therapist. As an Occupational Therapist, you will assist those individuals in developing and improving skills needed to participate in daily life activities. Through supportive therapy these children will be able to perform basic functions and become empowered to live and grow more independently.
