Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps people across the lifespan do the things they want and need to do through therapeutic use of daily activities or occupations. Occupational therapists (OTs) look at what elements support or hinder successful participation, which often includes the environment, sensory processing, behavior, motor skills, language and cognitive skill development and then tailors individualized activities for each client to help them achieve independence and well-being.

Occupational therapists and Occupational therapy assistants (OTAs) then implement these activities. For example, we may work on hand muscle strengthening using putty so that then a client can successfully button a shirt. We also recommend assistive technology devices such as writing tools to improve independence with drawing and writing skills and teach clients and caregivers how to use them.

How can occupational therapy help?

Occupational therapy helps clients with sensory processing, behavior, motor skills, language and cognitive skills.
