Pediatric physical therapy helps you learn to move. This can include rolling, crawling, walking, jumping, and navigating stairs and obstacles. Pediatric physical therapy is teaching gross motor activities. Pediatric occupational therapy teaches you how to complete tasks that are part of daily life, such as dressing—zippering and buttoning, eating—holding a utensil, and taking care of yourself. Pediatric occupational therapy is teaching fine motor tasks. It is common for both physical therapists and occupational therapists to work with doctors, nurses, social workers, speech or recreational therapists.
