What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy is a health and rehabilitation profession that helps people of all ages to participate fully in daily life activities. Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people who are experiencing physical, cognitive or emotional impairments by providing skilled evaluation, intervention, and health promotion strategies to help them take care of themselves and their families, be productive, and contribute to the social and economic fabric of the community.
