Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy, often abbreviated OT, is the use of treatments to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of people with a physical, mental or developmental condition.

Occupational therapy is a client-centered practice that places a premium on the progress towards the client’s goals.

Occupational therapy interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities, particularly those that are meaningful to the client.
