Occupational Therapy is therapy
provided through the MTP, for the purpose of improving self-help
skills or Activities of Daily Living. Occupational Therapy uses many
ways to improve the dysfunction that causes impairment in the
Activities of Daily Living, such as playing with play dough to
increase finger strength to allow a child to be able to manage pant snaps.
Therapy is provided by a trained Occupational Therapist who has
earned a Bachelors, Masters degree, and/or OTD, graduated from an
approved School of Occupational Therapy, and is licensed by the State
of California to provide Occupational Therapy.
Physical Therapy is provided
through the MTP, for the purpose of improving mobility and
ambulation. As an example, Physical Therapy may provide exercises on
a large ball to increase trunk control and overall strength to allow
