Occupational Therapy - Profession specific descriptor for registered professionals and support workers

An Occupational Therapist helps people of all ages overcome challenges completing everyday tasks or activities – “occupations”. Occupational Therapists see beyond diagnoses and limitations to hopes and aspirations. They look at relationships between the activities people do every day – their occupations – alongside the challenges they face and their environment. Then, they create a plan of goals and adjustments targeted at achieving a specific set of activities.

The plan is practical, realistic, and personal to the patient as an individual, to help them achieve the breakthroughs needed to elevate their everyday life. This support can give people a renewed sense of purpose. It can also open new opportunities and change the way people feel about the future.
