Program Overview

Occupational therapy is a dynamic health care profession that promotes engagement in meaningful daily and routine occupations, those activities that give meaning and purpose to our lives. Occupations commonly addressed through occupational therapy include self-care activities, work or school tasks, driving, leisure, home maintenance and community activities. Occupational therapists work with clients, families, groups and populations to promote health and wellness, prevent illness or injury, develop or restore functional and adaptation skills, facilitate social engagement, and create accessible and supportive environments.
