What Is an Occupational Therapist?

Occupational therapy is a healthcare profession that helps people with physical, developmental or emotional disabilities lead independent, productive and satisfying lives.

An occupational therapist, or OT, is part of our multidisciplinary rehabilitation team and often directs the following types of care:

  • Evaluates children with developmental or neuromuscular problems and helps plan treatments that will help them grow mentally, socially and physically
  • Assists adults in learning how to carry out activities of daily living (ADLs) at home, on the job and in the community
  • Helps the elderly adjust to the special problems of aging while remaining physically and mentally active
  • Recommends changes in layout and design of the home, school or workplace to allow people with disabilities greater access and mobility
  • Teaches energy conservation and work simplification methods
  • Improves communication skills, such as reading, writing and using the telephone

Our staff includes board-certified hand and pediatric therapists, as well as therapists providing comprehensive neurologic, orthopedic & sports medicine and pediatric services.
