Occupational therapy offers specialized support and services to people of all ages and in all circumstances. Therapists work with patients affected by illness, injury, or disability to maximize their physical and mental abilities. Practitioners use a holistic and customized approach to evaluations, interventions, and outcomes to help older adults stay as independent as possible, stroke victims relearn everyday tasks, children with disabilities participate in school and social situations, assist people recovering from injuries to regain skills, and so much more. For more information, visit The American Occupational Therapy Association, Inc. (AOTA).
