  9. How Can Occupational Therapy Help? • Occupational Therapists team with families to care for children and promote growth and development in natural environments where families live, work, and play. • Occupational Therapists respect the unique interests, cultural, needs and priorities of the child and family and build on their strengths and abilities • Occupational Therapists support children and families to be successful in their everyday routines. • Occupational Therapists modify activities or the environment so that individuals can participate independently or with others. • Occupational Therapists work closely with the families to identify their needs.

  10. What Can Parents and Families Do • Encourage sensory rich play by using balls, sand and water toys, slides, swings, finger paints and magnets. During sensory play, children use their senses to as they explore, discover, examine, and organize their activities. • Encourage manipulative play, such as using play dough, playing cards, stacking blocks or boxes, putting coins into a piggy bank, LEGOS, and board games. Toys such as puzzles, pegboards, beads, lacing cards, and hand writing to help improve the child’s eye-hand coordination and dexterity. • Promote imaginative or pretend play with things like dolls and stuffed animals, toy furniture, puppets and telephones. Pretend play encourages creativity and role playing and provides an opportunity to rehearse social skills. • Choose toys that are appropriate to the child’s age and/or maturity level. Common objects, such as pots and pans, empty boxes, spools of thread, shoelaces, and wooden spoons are readily accessible and encourage children to use their imagination. • Encourage children to participate in sports and games that could improve visual, motor, and coordination skills, such as playing ball, jacks, marbles, and outdoor sports.
