Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapists are rehabilitation care professionals who work to restore or improve physical abilities, promote behavioral changes, adapt surroundings, and teach new skills; the goal is to have the individual achieve her or his best physical and/or mental functioning in daily life tasks.

Occupational therapy practitioners help people adapt to a variety of challenges:

  • Developmental disabilities
  • Learning disabilities
  • Job-related injuries
  • Neurological problems
  • Orthopedic injuries
  • Birth defects
  • Stroke
  • Psychosocial disorders
  • Chemical dependency
  • Age-related disorders

They help with:

  • Impaired physical functioning which hampers the ability to perform life tasks
  • Psychosocial problems which hamper the ability to function in daily life
  • Special needs which require modification of the physical environment and/or use of specialized equipment and technologies (e.g., changes in the home or job site for a person in a wheelchair)
