Occupational therapy


Occupational therapy aims to help people to live their lives more independently. Occupational therapists contribute to the care of children and adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) by focusing on activities and goals that are meaningful to the individuals and their families. Occupational therapists can help, for instance, if you have limited use of your hand or arm due to a medical condition. They may recommend various exercises or activities, offer you advice, or suggest changing certain things in your everyday life. Occupational therapy can be useful for people of any age.

Family members can also get useful tips and advice from an occupational therapist. Depending on the type of limitation and your circumstances, occupational therapy may include the following:
