Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (Occupations). Common Occupational Therapy interventions include helping children or adults with disabilities to participate fully across all settings, helping people recover from injury to regain skills, and provide supports to adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Occupational Therapy enables individuals to achieve a higher level of independence through remediation skills, adaptive skills or compensatory skills. Candidates for Occupational Therapy services most likely have a physical, mental/cognitive, or developmental impairment that prevents them from performing at their maximum potential or level of independence during daily life, school, work or during play. Children learn through play and exploring their environment. Early intervention is key to building a strong foundation for critical basic skills of life.
