Occupational Therapy is the therapeutic use of self-care, work, and leisure activities to increase independance, enhance development, and prevent disability. Occupational therapy gives people the "Skills for the Job of Living" necessary for living meaningful and satisfying lives.
Occupational Therapists work with people with varying physical or mental conditions to enable them to maximize their skills and improve their quality of life. Occupational Therapists evaluate the person, environment and the activity. Interventions may include adaptation of tasks or lifestyle, environmental modifications, possible use of assistive devices or teaching new skills.
