What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy (OT) is the use of purposeful activity to achieve functional outcomes.

Occupational therapists work with individuals, groups and families to develop, improve, sustain, or restore the highest possible level of independence.

Occupational therapists have been trained to work with people who have injury, illness, cognitive impairment, psychosocial dysfunction, mental illness, developmental delay, learning difficulties, and other disorders or conditions.
