Aspect 3 - Occupational therapists understand how illness, injury, disability or challenging life events can affect people's ability to do the day-to-day things that are important for them.

Emily Tabor's comment, March 25, 2014 1:05 PM
The unique focus of Occupational Therapy is on the person's occupation. Occupational therapists use the term occupation to describe all the things we do to take care of ourselves and others; socialise and have fun; and work and contribute to society.
Emily Tabor's comment, March 25, 2014 1:05 PM
Occupational therapists are experts at assessing how different health conditions can affect people's abilities and helping people to overcome or work around the difficulties that are affecting their daily occupations.<br>Occupational Therapy focuses on people's strengths and therapy is always guided by the client's preferences (or those of their family in the case of children).
