What is Occupational Therapy or OT?
Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life.
Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement. (WFOT 2012)
In easy terms, Occupational Therapy is field of medicine, which falls under the category of allied medicine. It is concerned with helping individuals perform tasks that they do to OCCUPY their time. Children play and learn, adolescents plan careers and study, adults work and relax, older adults reminisce and stay active and an Occupational Therapist steps in whenever any of these individuals are unable to do their tasks because of some barriers or hindrances. These barriers could be physical issues like osteoarthritis of the knee, environmental issues such as living on the 4 th floor without elevator access but needing a wheelchair, psychosocial such as financial stress, family turmoil, etc.
