Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy at Children’s National Medical Center uses occupation or purposeful activity to help children with physical, developmental, or emotional disabilities lead independent, productive, and satisfying lives. Our occupational therapists coordinate different types of care for children with a variety of debilitating conditions.

Among the services we provide are:
  • Evaluating children with developmental, neuromuscular problems in order to plan treatment activities that will help them grow mentally, socially, and physically
  • Assisting children in learning how to carry out daily tasks
  • Conducting group or individual treatment to help children in a mental health center learn to cope with daily activities
  • Recommending changes in layout and design of the home or school to allow children with injuries or disabilities greater access and mobility
