Occupational Therapy

As defined by the American Occupational Therapy Association:

Occupational Therapy involves the “therapeutic use of work, self-care and play activities to increase independent function, enhance development, and prevent disability. It may include adaptation of task or environment to achieve maximum independence and to enhance the quality of life.”
