Down Syndrome Awareness Month - October 29

Did you know? People with Down syndrome can benefit from occupational therapy in adulthood.

An occupational therapist (OT) considers "occupation" to be anything we do throughout the day. An OT can work with an adult with Down syndrome to address life skills, self-care skills, social skills, transitions, routines, and more. Katie Frank, PhD, OTR/L, the occupational therapist at the Adult Down Syndrome Center, provides additional information about the benefits of occupational therapy for adolescents and adults with Down syndrome in this What is Occupational Therapy? article.
