What is OT?

Occupational therapy is the art and science of enabling engagement in everyday activities, through occupation; of enabling people to perform the occupations that foster health and well-being; and of enabling a just and inclusive society so that all people may participate to their potential in the daily occupations of life. (Townsend & Polatajko, 2007, p.372).

Occupational Therapists work with people of all ages, with or without disability helping them to cope with the challenges they have to do the activities that they need or want to do in order to have healthy and fulfilling lives.

An occupational therapist will assess a person’s situation and find practical solutions to help them lead a more fulfilling life. For example, an OT can provide help and training in daily activities such as dressing, bathing, offer advice on adapting the home or workplace, assess and recommend equipment such as mobility aids, wheelchairs and advice on special devices to help around the house, school or workplace.

Occupational therapy is concerned with the holistic treatment of patients. Your occupational therapist will consider not only your specific problem or disability but will also consider how this affects every other aspects of your life.
