Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a medically prescribed treatment for individuals whose ability to function independently has been either reduced or permanently lost due to illness or injury. With a unique combination of medical and behavioral services, occupational therapists can assist people in developing the skills needed to achieve their personal independence.

The special contribution of the occupational therapist is to analyze the effects of disability or developmental delay on the future of the adult or child. Programs are then designed to provide therapy, either directly to the client or through the involvement of other agencies.
