Occupational therapy is a profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations).
Occupational therapy services typically include:
- An individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the person’s goals,
- Customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
- An outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.
