Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a type of health care that helps to solve the problems that interfere with a person’s ability to do the things that are important to them — everyday things like: Self-care — getting dressed, eating, moving around the house; Being productive — going to work or school, participating in the community; and Leisure activities — sports, gardening, social activities.
