Occupational Therapist

Occupational therapists are health-science professionals with a Master’s or PhD degree in occupational therapy.

Practice

An occupational therapist (Fig. 1) works with children to improve coordination, motor skills, and skills to play, function in school, and perform routine activities. Kids in occupational therapy may be coping with birth defects, autism, juvenile rheumatoid arthritis, developmental delays, burns, amputations, or severe injuries.
