Hi, If you want OT and to be able to keep him at home have your 
peadatrission write a script for an OT evaluation, and then he can be seen 
at a local children's therapy clinic.


"When we treat children's play as seriously as it deserves, we are helping 
them feel the joy that's to be found in the creative spirit. It's the things 
we play with and the people who help us play that make a great difference in 
our lives."
