Find an OT
An OT considers the individual’s goals, abilities and challenges and works together with the individual, family and/or other care providers to support functional concerns related, but not limited to:
- Self-care: eating, sleeping, dressing, developmental transitions, home management, driving;
- Productivity: play, learning, work, retraining and transitions;
- Leisure: play, recreation, hobbies, socializing and sports.
