An occupational therapist focuses on the functional tasks that impact a child’s ability to interact effectively with his environment, family, and peers. This includes examining how he or she takes in information from his sensory system and processes it for use, how well he is able to modulate or regulate his responses to the information, and his actual performance of age appropriate skills.
The focus of a pediatric physical therapist is to maximize a child’s functional independence in their environment. For some children this means working on developing typical skills such as sitting, creeping and walking so that the child may better access their environment. For other children it can mean improving range of motion and/or strength to return to a previous level of functioning, after an injury or surgery.
A pediatric speech language pathologist is a person highly trained in the many aspects of communication: pre-communication skills, auditory comprehension, expressive language, oral motor development and feeding, articulation development, fluency, social language skills, and auditory processing, to name a few.
