Occupational therapy uses occupations, or meaningful activities, to help children with a wide range of difficulties in performing their daily tasks. Since these difficulties are multifaceted and potentially overlapping, occupational therapy begins with a detailed assessment, followed by an individualized program’s development. Occupational therapy is highly collaborative, in many ways holistic, and life-changing. We’ve shortlisted Hong Kong’s best occupational therapy providers to help you initiate the journey you and your child can take to improve the quality and joyfulness of your lives!
