What Is Occupational Therapy?
Occupational Therapists (OT's) and Occupational Therapy Assistants help individuals participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities participate fully in their lives, school and social situations.
Occupational therapy is essential in developing skills for participation in life activities for individuals across the autism spectrum at all ages. Because individuals on the autism spectrum face challenges throughout their lives, our therapists focus on developing skills needed for successful transition to adulthood and on meaningful community engagement. Our OT's practitioners are distinctly positioned to provide support and to problem solve strategies to reduce barriers to successful community participation in meaningful activities.
Occupational therapy services may include a comprehensive evaluation, recommendations for adaptive equipment or guidance and education for family members and caregivers. Our OT's are dedicated to meeting the needs of each of their clients.
