Occupational therapy is the therapy of doing. When people are injured, become sick, or when they are born with a disability, there can be gaps between what they are currently doing and what they want/need/dream to do. We use occupations that are important to the people that we work with as both goals and means so that clients can do what they need for their wellbeing.
