What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is carried out by Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants to promote greater independence for people across the lifespan using both habilitation and rehabilitation techniques. Occupational Therapy develops, improves, sustains or restores the skills needed for activities of daily living.  The goal of Occupational Therapy is simply to prepare individuals for the job of living and to enable one to function in their chosen environment using their chosen interests and skills.

Occupational Therapy services may include comprehensive evaluations of the client’s home and other environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers. Occupational Therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the person is an integral part of the therapy team.  AOTA, 2012
