Occupational therapists work with individuals with physical, cognitive, sensory, or psychosocial challenges that hinder their ability to engage in everyday activities.
Occupational Therapists work with individuals to develop strategies and use tools that can support them with regulating emotions and promote overall mental health and well-being.
Occupational therapists work with children to support their developmental milestones and help them build the skills needed for success in school and life.
Occupational therapists can assess and modify workplace environments to reduce the risk of injury and improve productivity and job satisfaction.
Occupational therapists can assist older adults in maintaining their independence and address the challenges associated with ageing, such as arthritis or dementia.
Home modification in occupational therapy aims to create a safe, accessible, and supportive environment that promotes an individual’s functional independence.
Occupational therapists equipment is prescribed after a thorough assessment of an individual’s needs, capabilities & goals. The equipment is chosen based on their requirements & abilities.
