Occupational therapy is a science-driven, evidence-based profession that enables people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health and prevent-or live better with-illness, injury, or disability. Occupational therapists (OT’s) focus on “doing” whatever activities are meaningful to the individual, whether that be self-care, homemaking, work, or leisure. The goal is to get beyond the problem and find the best solution to live life to its fullest.
OT’s work with people of all ages to help them participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. They help people recover from an injury, provide support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes, and help children with both learning and developmental disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations.
