Educational Video: Occupational Therapy in Early Childhood: A Guide for Pediatricians and Caregivers

SUNY Downstate occupational therapy students Moriah Carroll, Jamie Turkell, and Molly Wagman, as part of their curriculum, have produced a short educational video for pediatricians about occupational therapy services in early childhood.  They have collaborated with Dr. Harris Huberman, a developmental pediatrician and the Division Chief of Child Development and Developmental Disabilities at SUNY Downstate to ensure that the content of the video is relevant and beneficial to the education of pediatricians.

The video is being distributed to pediatric residency programs in New York State, early intervention agencies, and the NYC Department of Health. The video contains a wealth of information to increase awareness and knowledge of the role that occupational therapists play in early childhood development, which in turn can benefit families and children in need of services. Furthermore, it provides information to help guide pediatricians in the referral process.
