Children whose lives have been affected by developmental conditions, illness or injury can benefit from occupational therapy (OT). At Children’s Hospital Colorado, we start by doing an occupational therapy assessment, which includes developing an “occupational profile” for your child.

When you choose Children’s Colorado for your child’s occupational therapy evaluation, treatment planning and intervention, our OT experts focus on helping your child and family achieve and maintain health through meaningful participation in life activities.

The occupational therapists at Children's Colorado believe in the importance of family involvement in healthcare. This includes helping families setting goals for your child, attending therapy sessions, and following through with OT program suggestions at home.
Communication and educating your child and family is as important as the treatment your child receives at the hospital. We value the sharing of information and depend on a partnership with your family.
