Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy encourages and helps children participate in daily tasks, roles and habits which are necessary and meaningful to themselves and to their families and which promote health at home, at school and in their community.

Occupational therapy’s main focus is the sensory motor development of the infant/child with emphasis on:

  • Sensory organization (visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, gustatory stimuli)
  • Gross/fine motor skills
  • Visual motor coordination
  • Social behavior
  • Play


It is also very important to educate parents who need to assist the children in their daily activities (putting on-taking off clothes, eating, personal hygiene).

The intervention can also take place in the multisensory area which provides stimulus, relaxation, pleasure to the senses, sensory-motor and social experiences. In such a setting, Occupational Therapy helps the child develop the maximum possible functioning and personal autonomy, live its life to the fullest and become an equal member of society. It also contributes to a balanced and healthy everyday life.
