What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy helps people achieve satisfying, independent lives by identifying and addressing key factors that may be causing personal barriers. Functional abilities are assessed in consideration of physical, cognitive, emotional, social and environmental circumstances and then plans are developed. Occupational Therapists work directly or indirectly with clients in healthcare, community-based, and private sector environments.
