Occupational Therapy (OT) is an allied health profession focused on improving a person's ability to participate in the everyday activities of living at home, at school, at work, or at play. Birth defects, injuries, illnesses, diseases, and the effects of aging can cause people of all ages to have difficulty performing everyday activities like personal self-care, playing, homemaking, and working. Occupational Therapists offer creative solutions to help these adults and children so they can participate more fully in the daily activities that are meaningful to them. OT assists people in developing the "skills for the job of living" necessary for independent and satisfying lives.
