What is Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) refers to a group of complex disorders of brain development. ASD is generally characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and non-verbal communication, and emotional control. Many people with ASD have different ways of learning and reacting to situations, which is why individualized therapy is so beneficial.
What is Occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy (OT) is the use of assessment and treatment to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of people with a physical, mental, or cognitive disorder. Occupational therapists also focus much of their work on identifying and eliminating environmental barriers to independence and participation in daily activities. Occupational therapy is a client-centered practice that places emphasis on the progress towards the client's goals. Occupational therapy interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities, particularly those that are meaningful to the client
