A play-based approach to Occupational Therapy for toddlers

Occupational Therapy
for Toddlers

Occupational therapy for children helps them gain independence while
strengthening their skills including:

  • Fine motor skills
  • Gross motor skills
  • Sensory motor skills
  • Visual motor skills

All of these are necessary for engaging in play, socializing with peers, completing daily self-care tasks, and participating in classroom activities.

Are you noticing this about your child?

  • Challenges with sensory processing. This may look likevpicky eating, fear of movement, aversion to grooming activities, etc.
  • Difficulty with safety awareness (i.e. difficulty moving through a cluttered room without bumping into items or falling and seeking activities like crashing or falling purposely)
  • Delays in gross motor skills (coordination, balance, etc.)
  • Delays in fine motor skills (scissor skills, handwriting, tool use, etc.)
  • Difficulty with self-regulation
  • Difficulty attending to tasks, breaking down tasks into manageable steps, difficulty coming up with new ideas during play, or challenges with problem solving
  • Frequent emotional fluctuations, difficulty with transitions, or difficulty “rebounding” from
    a tantrum
  • Challenges completing age-appropriate self-care tasks (dressing, grooming, self-feeding etc.)
Every child is uniquely different and their motor skill delays will manifest in a variety of ways. These examples serve as a guideline but this is not a complete list of every symptom you may be noticing in your child today. If you’re noticing a delay, connect with us and let’s have a chat.
