Oscar Nominated film and book Life, Animated is about the life of Owen Suskind. Owen was diagnosed with autism at the age of 3. He lost speech and it seemed his ability to connect to others until his family started to use the very thing that he loved: Disney Animated Film. This is a beautiful story of using a child's affinity to bring us all together. Christine Sproat had the priviledge to work as Owen's OT from the time he was 5 years old starting at a Sensory Integration Camp.

What is Occupational Therapy?

"Occupational therapy is as a profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation." - The World Federation of Occupational Therapists

A pediatric occupational therapist helps a child to develop, maintain and restore abilities to become independent while performing activities within their daily lives. Occupational therapists are trained to use a developmental frame of reference when completing a specific activity and/or during play. Through the exchanges with the therapist, the child begins to foster the development of skills which have not been previously learned or developed.
