What is Occupational Therapy?



Occupational Therapy (OT) is a science-driven, evidence-based profession that enables people of all ages live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability. This is accomplished through designing strategies for everyday living and customizing environments to develop and maximize potential. By taking the full picture into account—a person's psychological, physical, emotional, and social make-up—occupational therapy assists people in: Achieving their goals, functioning at the highest possible level, concentrating on what matters most to them, maintaining or rebuilding their independence, participating in the everyday activities that they need to do or that simply make life worth living.  OT helps individuals design their lives, develop skills, adjust home, school, or work environments, and build health-promoting habits and routines. Occupational Therapy uses everyday activities as the means to enable people to thrive. OT works to get beyond disability or limitations, creating ways for individuals to live life to its fullest no matter what.
