Occupational Therapy focuses on enabling participation/engagement in:
- Activities that are necessary for an individual to perform in daily life and
- Activities that are meaningful or highly valued by an individual.
Such activities typically fall under the broad categories of self-care, productivity, and leisure. Occupational therapists can help to adapt tasks or environments to match the needs and abilities of individuals or can focus on specific skill development in order to help facilitate participation in daily living with as much independence as possible.
