How can Occupational Therapy help me or my family?
Depending on what the problem is, the occupational therapist can help you to solve it by:
1. Helping you overcome your disability
2. Adapting the material or equipment you use
3. Recommending changes to the environments where you do your occupations
Occupational therapy works to break down the barriers which impede individuals in their everyday activities. Occupational therapists examine not only the physical effects of an injury or disease, but also address the psycho-social, community and environmental factors that influence function.
