Occupational Therapy

"Occupational therapy uses everyday activities as the means of helping people to achieve independence. For the person with a physical disability, the first focus is on performing critical daily activities, such as dressing, grooming, bathing and eating. Once these skills are mastered the occupational therapy program is built around the skills needed to perform a person's daily responsibilities such as participating in education, caring for a home and family, or seeking and maintaining employment."

-American Occupational Therapy Association
