OT for Children

OT for Children

Occupational therapy is not only adult centred but can play an integral role in the lives of children. OT for children can improve various needs such as cognitive, sensory, physically and motor skills. Modern-day occupational therapy is vastly popular amongst children as their development paves the path and foundation for the rest of their lives. OT can ensure that your child develops the relevant skills needed to succeed and overcome numerous milestones and challenges during their development. Early intervention is always the key; how sooner you as parent act; how less likely your child will battle with any challenges. In this day and age, when children are bombarded with homework and extra-curricular activities, it can be hard to find time for numerous therapies, and it is good to know that a Catch Up Kids program can have all-encompassing benefits on a child’s development as well an increase in skills and academics. OT for children improves and nourishes skills for your child. It focuses on a current problem at hand as well as preventing any problematic behaviour from occurring in near futures. As a parent you would want the best for your child such as great fine motor skills, gross motor skills, processing, and memory and attention skills. The above mentioned is everything a child would need to succeed in mainstream schooling in terms of academics, social, emotional, and physical aspects. OT for children will be able to evaluate school performances, playing and other daily activities, and compare these to what is developmentally acceptable for that certain age group. OT for children also develops programs to provide your child with those skills.  OT for children doesn’t only focus on physical skills; they also focus on psychological, social and environmental factors that can possibly impact your child’s life. Occupational therapy has the tools to develop programs to assist your child in overcoming new challenges. OT for children is a solution for learning difficulties – the approach it follows is unique as it develops programs that can develop fundamental skills. These programs are conducted in fun and interactive ways. Catch up Kids aims to improve a child’s skills by focussing on how that individual learns best. It continues by incorporating this in their respective programs. At Catch up Kids we follow a one on one approach which ensures that your child is receiving quality teaching. Children tend to learn better in a one on one setting and this is what occupational therapy can provide. In this setting your child has great chances of achieving their goals. They can now develop independence and be successful in a setting which is as challenging as a classroom environment.  OT for children is a positive and holistic approach which makes it so much more effective than standard special schools. Catch up Kids will not view your child and the problem; instead they view your child as a total entity and take into account numerous other factors that play a role in their unique identity. How your child plays with other peers, the way he/she thinks and how they go about daily activities all assist in understanding a child.  OT for children is an early intervention which should be taken into account if you want the best for your child’s development.  The positive effects this can have on your child’s wellbeing and happiness are endless. Let Catch Up Kids cater for all your child’s developmental and educational needs.
