What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupation Therapy (sometimes referred to as: ‘OT’), is a skilled sector of healthcare which focusses on the use of specialised techniques to help restore, improve and/or maintain the day-to-day abilities of people who possess physical and mental conditions which can have a negative impact on their lives.

Occupational therapists work towards assessing their clients’ individual needs so that a set of clear goals can be established: Once these aims have been set, an occupational therapist will prescribe a series of specialised activities designed to direct their client towards their goals.

Occupational therapy is a broad sphere which encompasses many specialised areas, such as:

• Acute medicine
• Forensic
• Geriatric
• Mental health
• Orthopaedics
• Paediatrics
• Rehab
• Social services
• And many more

Due to the diverse range of specialist areas within the OT realm, occupational therapists can work across a number of different settings, from hospitals to community centres, all the way through to the homes of their clients.

Occupational therapy is a sector of healthcare in which the ability to work closely with people is a crucial skill.
