Ergotherapy for children
In order to support children’s psychomotor development, to improve their fine motor skills and to develop their brain activity, ergotherapy (occupational therapy) applies games with a large number of aids.
Pediatric ergotherapy develops:
- graphomotor skills
- fine motor skills
- the coordination of movement and balance
- psychomotor development
- self-sufficiency in indoor and outdoor environments
- learning and attention
Ergotherapy is suitable:
- for children with dyspraxia (developmental coordination disorder) - using the MABC 2 test, we will determine the degree and characteristics of motor problems as well as the developmental disorder of motor coordination
- for children with reduced ability to concentrate and with hyperactivity
- for children with specific learning disabilities
- for children with disabilities of neurological origin
Both the duration and the frequency of the therapy are highly individual and are determined in agreement with the occupational therapist. The therapist recommends rehabilitation aids and teaches patients and their family members how to use them. The therapist also provides advice and instruction on the adaptation and compensation of disorders and diseases, as well as on the adaptation of the home environment.
