Occupational Therapy

Skills on the Hill offers occupational therapy services at both our Arlington, VA and Washington, DC locations. Occupational therapists work with children to address developmental differences that impact participation at school, home, and in the community. Occupations are activities in which people engage; for a child, those include play, education, social participation, and activities of daily living including feeding, bathing, getting dressed, and completing daily routines. From developing fine motor skills to grasp toys to addressing difficulties with organization and executive functioning, our OTs work alongside children birth through teenagers on a variety of skill areas. Treatment is targeted by identifying barriers to participation with the goal of gaining improved independence while building self-esteem!
