100 words for 100 years – American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA)

Happy Birthday AOTA! Look how far we’ve come!

OT, especially pediatric, has made incredible strides in the treatment of children. Occupational Therapy helps children to develop the underlying skills necessary for learning, social capacities, self-confidence, motor abilities and functional skills. We have moved beyond just crafts and handwriting to focus on:

1- Self-regulation

2- Executive Function

3-Sensory processing

4-Motor planning

5-Social Skills

This 100-year anniversary is an opportunity for our profession to celebrate our enriched past and look to the future with optimism for children and their families!
