What is occupational therapy?
Occupational therapy (OT) is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of OT is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. It involves assessing and addressing physical, psychological, and environmental factors that may affect an individual’s ability to perform daily tasks, such as self-care, work, and leisure activities.
How occupational therapy helps
Occupational therapy practitioners employ a holistic approach, considering all aspects of a client’s life. The process typically begins with an assessment to identify the client’s goals and needs. Following this, the therapist develops a customised intervention plan to improve the client’s ability to perform daily activities and reach their goals. This often includes adapting to the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client and their family to increase participation in various activities.
Occupational therapy benefits a wide range of individuals, including:
- Children and adolescents with developmental or learning disabilities.
- Adults recovering from injuries or who have physical or mental health issues.
- Older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
- Individuals with chronic health conditions or disabilities seeking to improve their ability to perform daily activities.
