What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational therapy is a profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations).
The Goal of occupational therapy is to enable an individual to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists work with individuals to enhance their ability to engage in the day to day activities they are expected to do. Often times they work with families to help modify the environment to better support their the daily activities of the clients.
