What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy practitioners ask,

"What matters to you?" not, "What's the matter with you?"


Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations).
