Disclaimer: Every child is different and this is just our experience from following special needs children. It does not mean that OT will work the same way for your child.
April is Occupational Therapy (OT) Awareness Month. Several children with special needs attend therapy including OT. OT has so many benefits for these children. The primary goal of OT is to help with fine motor skills such as being able to grasp objects and write. OT works on different things for different children depending on what they need it for. It can also help with sensory issues such as helping the child get used to different textures such as Play-doh.
If you are interested in learning more on the benefits of OT for special needs children, please read an article here.
