Senior Occupational Therapist for over 30 years Kim Cunningham shares here her insights on how Occupation Therapy fosters childhood development. Kim understands that children with developmental disabilities may struggle in their day-to-day lives without receiving the support they need. Occupational therapy can provide children with valuable tools to enhance their daily lives and improve their overall well-being. 

“Childhood is a critical period for growth and development, because it’s where the physical, emotional, cognitive, and social skills begin to take shape. These are the skills that kids will carry forward as they grow up and lead successful, fulfilling lives. Sometimes, kids need a little extra support in mastering these skills, and that’s where Occupational therapy (OT) can help. Particularly at a young age, early intervention plays a vital role in helping kids feel more comfortable, more autonomous, and more self-confident.
