Occupational therapists provide rehabilitative services to persons with physical, developmental, and mental disabilities. The goal of therapy is to enable clients to function as independently as possible in the areas of self-care, work, and leisure. They may help a disabled homemaker learn how to perform household tasks or help an injured worker return to work by improving hand strength and coordination. Those best suited for this profession genuinely relate to both individuals and small groups. The potential OT student must be flexible, creative, and a good problem solver. The focus of occupational therapy is on performances of daily living, work and productivity, play or leisure, cognition and social interactions. These areas require individualized care and empathy in the provision of client-centered services to integrate performance, roles, and contexts.
