What is Occupational Therapy?

What is Occupational Therapy?

  

Occupational therapy is a profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation (or, in other words, "how you spend your time"). 

The goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in their activities of daily life. This might include finding ways to help you become more safe and independent with: 


  • moving around your home
  • accessing your community
  • completing personal and household chores
  • overcoming education or workplace barriers due to disability


We might do this by:


  • modifying the environment
  • prescribing specialised equipment
  • modifying the task
  • teaching new techniques

An OT can also work closely with family, friends, care services or other people in your life to help you achieve your goals.
