“Sometimes people are surprised when they find out that children receive occupational therapy. But a child’s occupation is being a child, and we work on skills they need to be successful,” said occupational therapist Jordyn Farver. These activities can include brushing teeth and getting dressed − or skills a child may need to succeed in school, such as writing or cutting with scissors.
