Occupational therapy (OT) is the use of assessment and treatment to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of people with a physical, mental, or cognitive disorder. Occupational therapists also focus much of their work on identifying and eliminating environmental barriers to independence and participation in daily activities.
Occupational therapy is a client-centered practice that places emphasis on the progress towards the client’s goals. The interventions focus on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities, particularly those that are meaningful to the client.
Occupational therapists work closely with professionals in physical therapy, speech therapy, nursing, psychology, and the community.
