WHAT IS OT AND PT?
HOW DOES IT BENEFIT CHILDREN AT THE JCC?

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a service that helps students develop the basic sensory awareness and fine motor skills needed to learn and grow. This includes body awareness, coordination of movements, fine motor control and organization, motor planning, visual perceptual skills, self-regulation, and sensory modulation (reaction to stimulus). Children who might benefit from occupational therapy are those that exhibit poor coordination, decreased balance (“clumsiness”), delayed fine motor skill development, low muscle tone or strength in their upper extremities, difficulty with handwriting, decreased attention or ability to participate in age appropriate activities, decreased visual skills including visual perceptual skills and ocular motor skills and difficulties with tolerating everyday tactile, visual, or auditory sensory experiences.

Physical Therapy (PT) is a service that helps students develop the gross motor skills needed to participate in a school setting and navigate their physical world independently. This includes body awareness, balance, coordination of movements, strength, flexibility, gross motor control and organization, and motor planning. Children who might benefit from physical therapy are those that exhibit poor gross motor development and mobility, decreased strength, decreased balance and coordination, decreased flexibility, and decreased safety when navigating a school environment.
