Occupational therapy is the assessment and treatment in the development, recovery and maintenance of the day-to-day living and work skills of patients suffering from physical, mental and cognitive disorders. It can help improve sensory integration in such individuals. Thus the focus is on the identification and elimination of barriers to their patients’ independence and active daily living. Most of the work of an occupational therapist centers on physical therapy and speech therapy of these disabled patients.
Conditions and patients requiring speech therapy and physical therapy and other services offered by an occupational therapist include cerebral palsy, paraplegia, stroke survivors, autistic patients and those disabled by accidents and brain diseases such as Parkinsonism, Huntingtons disease, myasthenia gravis and multiple sclerosis. Speech therapy and physical therapy are not the only services provided by occupational therapy. Social work also falls under occupational therapy. An occupational therapist works with other specialists and disciplines in availing themselves of their services.
