Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy focuses on improving a patient's ability to engage in his or her meaningful occupation. A person may be referred to occupational therapy due to a developmental delay or disability caused by illness, accident or a condition present at birth. Each patient referred will be evaluated by a Certified Licensed Occupational Therapist. Following the evaluation process, therapy goals will be set. Intervention strategies will be incorporated in each treatment session to enable the patient to achieve optimal function in daily activities.
