What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational Therapy is a health care profession centered upon assisting individuals to do everyday activities and roles that are important to them. An Occupational Therapist (OT) is trained in assessing the physical, cognitive, emotional and environmental barriers which may be impacting your ability to complete daily tasks or ‘occupations’. The term occupation refers to everything  that we do in the course of everyday life. These differ depending on one’s situation, stage of life and roles.
