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.
Occupational therapists (OTs) help patients get back to daily activities they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).
Occupational therapy services may include:
- A comprehensive examination and interventions based on the client’s home environment, school setting, or workplace.
- Recommendations are commonly made for adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and education for family members and caregivers.
