OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

According to the American Occupational Therapy Association, occupational therapy is defined as the care and services proved by or under the direction and supervision of an occupational therapist. Occupational therapy enables people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health and prevent—or live better with—illness, injury or disability. Occupational therapy services typically include but are not limited to:

  • Customized treatment programs to improve one’s ability to perform daily activities
  • Comprehensive home and job site evaluations with adaptation recommendations
  • Performance of skills assessments and treatment
  • Adaptive equipment recommendations and usage training
  • Guidance to family members and caregivers

Examples of conditions and injuries that a state licensed occupational therapist may treat include but not limited to:

  • Workplace and orthopedic conditions such as joint and soft tissue injuries limiting work performance
  • Neurological conditions such as stroke or traumatic brain injury
  • Cognitive disorders associated with neurological disorders such as impaired abstract-reasoning, problem-solving and perceptual skills
