This therapy is applied to children who have experienced various traumas at home or in the community. It can help the children deal with their feelings and improve communication skills. Occupational children’s therapy may also focus on helping the child learn new tasks or activities to replace those lost due to trauma.
The therapist will work with the family to develop a treatment plan that meets the child’s needs. Typically, this includes individual therapy, group therapy, and play therapy sessions.
