Occupational Therapy (OT) Specific Interventions

Occupational Therapists (OTs) define occupation as any task we do in our daily life, for example: driving a car, reading a recipe or being involved in an online classroom.

OTs work with people to assist them to participate in the occupations of everyday life. OTs aim to help people to adjust to major life changes, prevent loss of ability, and improve or maintain mental and physical health and wellbeing.

Occupations in everyday life might include:

  • Activities of Daily Living (ADL)
    • Self-care activities such as grooming, showering, dressing, eating
  • Household and Community functioning
    • Home maintenance, caring and parenting, driving, budgeting, shopping, community mobility
  • Leisure and Play
  • Social Participation
    • Interacting positively with others in your community
  • Work & Learning or Education
    • Paid or un-paid
    • Participating in employment or volunteering activities.
    • Schooling or education.

When injury, disability or disruptions in life impact your health, well-being, roles or function, OTs can help you to learn new skills or ways to do things, change your environment to promote your performance or adapt the activities you do to help you to be successful.
