What To Expect?
What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy is a health profession that is client-centered. The goal of occupational therapy is to promote health and well-being through occupations and performing activities of everyday life. This is achieved by modifying the occupation or environment specifically for an individual. Occupational therapists work with people and communities to enable them to do what they want to do, need to do, and are expected to do.
Who are occupational therapists?
Occupational therapists are trained to understand the physical and mental limitations that can be present following an injury or illness. Occupational therapists work collaboratively within the rehabilitation team to support the health and well-being of the individual through the recommendation of preventive or corrective action.
