What Is Occupational Therapy?

In its simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational
therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in
of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational
therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to
participate fully in school and social situations, helping people
recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports
for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
Occupational therapy services typically include an
individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and
occupational therapist determine the person’s goals, customized
intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily
activities and reach the goals, and an outcomes evaluation to
ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the
intervention plan. Occupational therapy services may include
comprehensive evaluations of the client’s home and other
environments (e.g., workplace, school), recommendations for
adaptive equipment and training in its use, and guidance and
education for family members and caregivers. Occupational
therapy practitioners have a holistic perspective, in which the
focus is on adapting the environment to fit the person, and the
person is an integral part of the therapy team.
