Occupational therapy can help you get back to participating in the things that you want to do and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities.

This includes helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.

Individuals with developmental disabilities have problems with everyday life activities including language, mobility, learning, self-help, and independent living.

These disabilities can occur during pregnancy, early childhood and up to the age of 22.
