Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy involves the therapeutic use of work, self-care, and play activities to increase independent function, enhance development, and prevent disability. The primary goal is to help people develop the necessary skills to lead a more independent, productive, and satisfying life within the limitations imposed upon them by illness, disability, or related health concerns. Occupational therapy creates opportunities for individuals in varying states of wellness or disability to reduce impairment, increase participation in life activities, and influence the state of their own health.
