Occupational Therapy - a treatment that focuses on helping people achieve independence in all areas of their lives - can provide patients with various needs with positive, fun activities to improve their cognitive, physical, and motor skills and enhance their self-esteem and sense of accomplishment.

Services typically include:

  • Customized treatment programs to improve one's ability to perform daily activities
  • Comprehensive home and job site evaluations with adaptation recommendations
  • Performance skills assessments and treatment
  • Adaptive equipment recommendations and usage training
  • Guidance for family members and caregivers

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.
