Occupational therapy helps children live more independently with their special needs through the therapeutic use of play, self care , learning and leisure activities. In NIARC, our Occupational therapists have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment and/or task to fit the child, and the child is an integral part of the therapy team. The emphasis is on learning through enjoyable activities which also motivate the child. We aim to make the child as independent as possible in the skills he/she needs for everyday life through a one to one training program.
