Let’s talk about what occupational therapists REALLY do! Not only do they help people, but they really focus on helping people complete daily life tasks. These are called ADLs and IADLs - activities of daily living and instrumental activities of daily living. Especially with children, these daily life tasks are so important and can create such a challenge for families with children with special needs! So, get ready to hear about how you, as a parent or caregiver or even as a therapist, can help your child improve their ability to complete simple and complex daily life tasks!
