Occupational Therapy 

Occupational Therapy (OT) is the use of assessment and intervention to develop, recover, improve, as well as maintain the skills needed for all life skills for activities, occupations, individuals, groups, or communities.

Individuals have many different occupations and daily living tasks that they participate in. For example playing, learning, communicating, taking care of themselves, and socializing with others. Our goal is to ensure that every individual is able to functionally participate in and succeed throughout their life events.
