What is Occupational Therapy?
OT is a type of treatment that helps people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Occupational therapist and their assistants help many people including children with disabilities participate fully in school and social situations, helping patients regain skills that they lost from an injury, and providing support for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
The OT department mostly consists of occupational therapists and occupational therapist assistants and their services typically includes:
- An individualized evaluation in which the client/family and therapist determine the person’s goals.
- Customized intervention to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals set.
- A Re-Evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan of treatment.
Some companies (hospitals) have 2 or even 3 areas of OT including outpatient, inpatient and home health.
