A child learns through play and through interactions with people and objects in his world. If a child is experiencing gross motor delays, it will impact the quality of the child’s interactions and cause delays in the child’s development of skills around those situations.
The “Pyramid” model that we use has as its base level sensory and motor skills. This level is best managed by pediatric physical and occupational therapists. The most basic difference between physical therapy and occupational therapy is that a PT focuses on larger muscles and gross motor skills, improving the patient’s ability to move their body successfully within their environment. An OT focuses on fine motor and sensory/regulatory functioning, improving the patient’s ability to perform activities of daily living more successfully in the home, classroom, social settings, etc.
