What is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapy allows people with a health condition or disability participate in the activities they find important and meaningful. These are called occupations, and are the things in life that people need to do, want to do and are expected to do. An Occupational Therapist helps people gain independence of the things in life they would like to do, by using different therapy techniques, changing their environment and teaching them to use adaptive equipment.
