Occupational Therapy Q & A

What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is a type of rehabilitation focused on helping people across all stages of life take agency in their life by using everyday activities, or occupations, as therapy. Examples of such occupations include:

  • Leisure and play activities
  • Self-care
  • Work

Occupational therapy helps people with physical, mental, emotional, and developmental difficulties learn how to lead fulfilling and productive lives despite their difficulties. Typical clients of occupational therapists include:

  • Older adults experiencing life and/or cognition changes
  • Children with developmental disabilities
  • People recovering from traumatic injuries
  • Adults with behavioral health issues, such as anxiety and depression

How can occupational medicine help me?

Depending on your challenges, occupational medicine can help you or a loved one in countless ways. This holistic approach to therapy offers tools and practice for improved:

  • Social/interpersonal skills
  • School participation
  • Self-care (eating, dressing, etc.)
  • Time management and other life skills

How does occupational therapy work?

During occupational therapy, your occupational therapist meets with you, evaluates your challenges and needs, including the nature of your core environments (home, work, school, etc.) and develops an action plan that includes:

  • Specific desired goals
  • Steps to improve your ability to reach goals and carry out daily tasks
  • An outline with which you can evaluate your progress

Occupational medicine doesn’t start and end with one visit. Rather, occupational medicine hinges on guidance for you and your support system as well as training in adaptive strategies. Sometimes, this includes teaching you new skills.

Often, to make positive changes, you have to make changes to your environment. Occupational therapy is designed around the individual and is different for everyone.

Whether it’s for you or a loved one, occupational therapy is an extremely healthy choice. If you’ve been struggling, don’t wait to reach out any longer. Help is waiting for you.
