What IS Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is when occupational therapists and sometimes assistants help people to participate in their desired activities and occupations by strengthening the everyday activities, they need to use to be successful.
Occupational therapy considers the complex relationship between the client, the activity, and the environment where the activity takes place. Examples of OT interventions include but are not limited to:
Helping a child with a disability to participate fully in school and social situations,
Assisting an injured worker in regaining skills they need to function in their job, or
Providing support to older adults experiencing cognitive or physical changes
