What is Occupational Therapy?

  "In its simplest terms, occupational therapists help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes." - AOTA

"Occupational therapy practitioners ask, "What matters to you?" not, "What's the matter with you?"
