Occupational Therapy (OT) is a healthcare profession that focuses on promoting independence in daily activities of everyday life. Children’s occupations include: eating, toileting, dressing, playing, socializing, learning, etc. These are essential to a child’s development and ensure they become independent adults in the future.
Play and socialization foster children’s learning. Occupational therapy encourage peer interactions, honing skills like initiation, sharing, and turn-taking.

I'm delighted to have Bengisu as my son's occupational therapist. Her expertise and caring nature make her an ideal choice for working with children.
