Occupational Therapy

Welcome to Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia provides services to children and young adults facing the social, emotional and physiological effects of illness and injury.

Occupational therapists are trained in interventions that help individuals achieve independence in all areas of their lives. We'll work with your child to enhance participation in every day activities, play and sports, and the return to home, school or work.

Our staff address a wide range of diagnostic and rehabilitation services, including:

Trained and licensed occupational therapists work in acute care and ICUs, inpatient rehabilitation, outpatient services, and in specialty diagnostic clinics and programs.

For more information or to request an appointment for your child, please call us directly at 215-590-5819. If you have an appointment, please visit the Your Visit section of this site for directions, parking information and more.

If you are a student or professional, visit our Resources for Professionals section for information on our educational programs and work we're doing to advance the field of Occupational Therapy.
