Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy helps individuals achieve their highest level of independence in activities of daily living (ADLs): Work, School, Leisure, Play and Sports Activities

If you have an injury, impairment or limitation that prevents you from fully participating in activities of daily living, occupational therapy can assist you in developing the necessary skills to be as independent as possible.

Achieving full independence might include the use of adaptive equipment or modifications to one’s environment or specific activity
