    What is OT?



    Occupational therapy is a profession concerned with
    promoting health and well being through
    occupation.
    The primary goal of occupational therapy is to
    enable people to participate in the activities of
    everyday life.
    Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by
    enabling people to do things that will enhance their
    ability to participate or by modifying the
    environment to better support participation.
    Occupational therapists have a broad education
    that equips them with skills and knowledge to work
    collaboratively with individuals or groups of people
    who have an impairment of body structure or
    function due to a health condition, and who
    experience barriers to participation.
    Occupational therapists believe that participation
    can be supported or restricted by physical, social,
    attitudinal and legislative environments. Therefore,
    occupational therapy practice may be directed to
    changing aspects of the environment to enhance
    participation.



    What Do Occupational Therapists Do?

    Occupational therapists are health professionals
    who are trained to assist people to overcome
    limitations caused by injury or illness, psychological
    or emotional difficulties, developmental delay or the
    effects of aging.
    Their goal is to assist each individual to move from
    dependence to independence, maximizing personal
    productivity, well being and quality of life.

    What Kinds of People Use OT Services?

    Occupational therapists work with people from all
    walks of life.
    An OT may specialise in a particular field of activity,
    such as:
    • Paediatrics
    • Individuals with physical disabilities
    • Mental health
    • Vocational rehabilitation
    • Aged Care
    • Independent living skills


    How Do Occupational Therapists Work?

    Occupational therapists take a holistic approach to
    the needs of their clients which usually involves
    three stages of care.
    The abilities of each client are assessed in the
    context of work, school, home, leisure, general
    lifestyle and family situation.
    Having made an assessment, the occupational
    therapist will talk with the client, other
    professionals and family members who may be
    closely involved, in order to develop a treatment
    program.
    Depending on the nature and length of the
    program, treatment may take place in a clinic,
    hospital ward, residential care centre or at the
    client's home, school or workplace.
    The goal is to maximize the client's skills for living.
