Occupational Therapy is the therapeutic combination of art and science that allows individuals to live independent, productive, and satisfying lives. Occupational Therapy is based on the premise that “Occupations” occupy ones life, from basic living skills to work and leisure pursuits. Meaningful occupations have a therapeutic effect when used as an intervention as well as an achievable goal. Occupational Therapists work collaboratively with their clients to set goals and achieve maximum independence with daily living skills using a client-centered, individualized approach to treatment.
