An Occupational Therapist (OT) promotes the function, development, and engagement of infants and toddlers by addressing areas of occupations such as play, education, self-care, social participation, and rest and sleep. They assist children with their fine motor skills, which involve the small muscles of the body. These skills include reaching, grasping, using both hands together, and self-help skills such as self-feeding, dressing, and hygiene. An OT may also be helpful with feeding difficulties that involve the small muscles of the face and mouth, developing skills involving eye-hand coordination, and sensory-integration issues. The OT can assist in making recommendations for adaptive equipment that may be needed.
