Welcome to Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is the use of treatments to develop, recover or maintain the daily living and work skills of people with physical, mental or developmental conditions. Treatment focuses on adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the patient/family in order to increase participation in and performance of daily activities. Occupational Therapists (OTs) evaluate and treat people with physical, cognitive, memory, sensory, visual, motor and/or psychological disabilities, striving to maximize functional outcomes and safety awareness.
