Explore Children & Youth Topics
AOTA has identified Children and Youth as a key practice area for the 21st century. Pediatric occupational therapy practitioners support societal needs by providing services to infants, toddlers, children, and youth and their families in a variety of settings including schools, clinics, and homes. With the new IDEA regulations, occupational therapy practitioners are also participating in broad new initiatives such as early intervening services and Response to Intervention.
