Occupational therapy (OT) addresses and treats clients with a physical, mental, or cognitive disorder in order to help them develop, recover, or maintain daily living and/or work skills. These professionals also concentrate on discovering and reducing environmental obstacles to independence and participation in daily activities. Occupational therapy is a client-centered practice that not only helps individuals improve their daily lives but also focuses on the creation of and progress towards client goals. Occupational therapists typically concentrate on environmental adaptation, modifying challenging tasks, teaching lifestyle skills, and educating the client/family with the goal of increasing performance of and participation in daily activities, particularly those that are significant in the clients life.
Occupational therapists assist clients whose goal is to participate as active and productive members of society but are limited by physical, cognitive, developmental, or emotional challenges. Hiring an occupational therapist has a positive effect on health and well-being as these experts create structure and organizes time bringing meaning to the clients life, both culturally and personally. Those who decide to participate in therapy are typically individuals with mental or physical challenges, people recovering from a physical accident, or senior citizens who interested in productive aging.
