Occupational Therapy, or OT for short, aim to help individuals perform everyday tasks. “Occupations’ refer to daily activities the individual wants to, needs to, or are expected to do.
Occupational Therapists aim to help the individual achieve success in their occupations by:
- developing the knowledge and skills required for the occupation
- modify the task or the way the task is completed
- modify the environment or provide alternative equipment and assistive devices
