According to the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), in addition to dealing with an individual's physical well-being, Occupational Therapy practitioners address psychological social, and environmental factors that may hinder an individual's functioning in different ways. This unique approach makes occupational therapy a vital part of health care or some patients.

Some people may think that Occupational Therapy is only for adults; children, after all, do not have occupations. But a child's main job is playing and learning, and an Occupational Therapist can evaluate a child's skills for play activities, school performance, and activities of daily living and compare them to what is developmentally appropriate for an age group.
