Occupational therapists work with individuals to develop or relearn the skills needed to perform everyday activities of daily living (ADLs) for use in the home and community. These skills include the physical, cognitive, and visual-perceptual abilities to perform self-care and home management. Occupational therapists also work with individuals on more advanced skills to function effectively in the work, school and community environments.
Areas of emphasis include:
- Neuromuscular re-education and strengthening
- Adaptive equipment or methods for ADLs
- Pre-driving clinical evaluation
- Community re-entry
