Occupational Therapy

This can benefit a person with autism by attempting to improve the quality of life for the individual.  The aim is to maintain, improve, or introduce skills that allow an individual to participate as independently as possible in meaningful life activities.  Coping skills, fine motor skills, play skills, self-help skills, and socialization are all targeted areas to be addressed.

Through Occupational Therapy methods, a person with autism can be aided both at home and within the school setting by teaching and reinforcing the following: activities including dressing, feeding, toilet training, grooming, social skills; fine motor and visual skills that assist in writing and scissor use; gross motor coordination to help the individual ride a bike or walk properly, and; visual-perceptual skills needed for reading and writing.

Occupational Therapy is usually part of a collaborative effort of medical and educational professionals as well as parents and other family members.  Through such collaboration, a person with autism can move towards the appropriate social, play and learning skills needed to function successfully in everyday life.
