Whether that be handwriting, general focus or participating in craft activities, occupational therapy can help children more fully participate in school based activities by improving fine motor ability and broadening sensory capacity. Aram was born and raised in Phoenix, Arizona and only moved to Nebraska recently. Although he has spent most of his life in Arizona, he has also lived in Florida, New Mexico and Sydney, Australia. Aram enjoys outdoor activities such as hiking, canoeing, kayaking, biking, kayaking and occasionally disc golf.
