Occupational Therapy is a health care profession that addresses physical/functional limitations interfering with one’s ability to successfully engage in “occupation.” Occupation refers to any activity carried out by an individual in the areas of: self care, productivity and leisure.
Children and youths have many “occupations” that they participate in everyday. The occupations of childhood include being a student, a family member, and a friend, with learning and recreating being the primary activities of these occupations. Occupational therapists help children overcome challenges, so that they can function more successfully in their various roles and in different environments.
