What is Occupational Therapy?
occupational therapy is…
A healthcare profession that focuses on enabling clients to participate to the fullest extent and experience success in activities/occupations that are meaningful to them.
Some examples include:
Self-care (e.g., dressing, eating, toileting, bathing)
Productivity (e.g., school work, household chores, volunteering)
Leisure (e.g., play, hobbies)
Our role is to foster health and well-being through occupation.
Occupational therapists (OTs) accomplish this by collaborating with clients, families, communities, and stakeholders to enhance their clients’ abilities to participate in the occupations that are meaningful to them.
OTs also assist clients by modifying the environment or occupation to support their occupational engagement/engagement in activities.
