Occupational therapy helps people learn how to perform the tasks of daily life, such as eating, bathing and writing, when a health problem affects their ability to function. Seattle Children's has the largest group of occupational therapists in the Pacific Northwest dedicated to working with infants, children and teens. Our clinic is a regional center for the treatment of infants through young adults who have trouble eating and swallowing. Our therapists have extensive experience evaluating children who have problems using their muscles to eat, speak, draw or write (fine motor skills). In addition, we provide splints and other positioning devices to children throughout the region who need help to keep their bodies in correct alignment.
