Benefits of Occupational Therapy

Nature is a natural play space for children and offers countless benefits

Calmer Kids

• Nature sounds activate the auditory center of the brain, helping children to orient themselves to their place in space.
• Spending time outdoors decreases anxiety, increases attention span, and improves self-regulation.

Stronger and More Coordinated Kids

• Active free play outdoors stimulates all of the senses
• Vitamin D from sunlight strengths bones and muscles
• Children who play among trees, large rocks, and uneven terrain have better balance and agility
• Engaging in "risky" play benefits balance, strength and coordination
• Combats obesity and diabetes by engaging in physical activity

Socially and Emotionally Stronger Kids

• Provides a stimulating mental challenge to think of imaginative and creative play schemes​
• Builds friendships through play
• Peer play happens more naturally in an outdoor setting than in any other setting
• Fosters independence and improves interpersonal skills
• Children learn patience, perseverance, and resilience
• Improved safety by having an increased awareness of abilities and risk taking

How do I know if my child needs Occupational Therapy?

It is time to refer to an O.T. if your child’s daily struggles are having a real negative impact on the child and family unit, at school or in another setting. Of course, children need ample time to learn new skills. However, there is a window of integration that is developmentally appropriate.
