What is Occupational Therapy?

This type of treatment (Occupation Therapy) may help you if you have an injury, illness, or pain. OT can help you in school, work, or in your home. The treatment is very safe and can be exactly what you need to get your daily activities back on track. To become an occupational therapist you must pass a national exam and become licensed. Typically some OTs go through more training so they can focus on children or adults, hand therapy, and people with low vision. You’ll see at Glen Island we have health professionals who specialize in all different kinds of occupational therapy.

Occupational Therapy Process

Occupational therapists help people across their lifespan participate in things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of typical daily activities (occupations). They help children who have disabilities to participate in school and social events, also helping those people recover from injuries to redevelop skills. Common occupational therapy interventions are centered around the individual who is needing therapy. Occupational therapy services include but are not limited to :
  • an individual receives an evaluation, which then the client or family and occupational therapist decide the person’s goals on improving their health.
  • you would then have an intervention to improve the person’s ability to actually perform daily activities and reach the goals that they have set for themselves.
  • now is the final evaluation, which is where you’d check-up to ensure that the goals are being met on time and adjust the intervention plan from there.

Do not get physical and occupational therapy confused. Occupational Therapy is focused on your long-term health. OT can help people of all ages. We try to get you back to living as independently as possible. Physical therapy is focused on athletes and people with problems who need to manage their pain through special exercises.
