Occupational therapy

Occupational Therapy for Cerebral Palsy

 

An occupational therapist specializes in improving the development of the small muscles of the body, such as the hands, feet, face, fingers and toes. Occupational therapy teaches <a href=”http://www.about-cerebral-palsy.org/children-with-cerebral-palsy/”>children with Cerebral Palsy</a> daily living skills such as dressing and eating, as well as making sure children are properly positioned in wheelchairs. ¬†Occupational therapy may also teach your child better or easier ways to write, draw, cut with scissors, brush their teeth, dress, and feed themselves. Occupational therapists will help parents find the right special equipment to make their child’s everyday jobs a little easier.
