What is OT?

Why you need Occupational Therapy?

The question ‘What is Occupational Therapy?’ is often asked by many. The aim of Occupational Therapy (OT) is to enable people to live as independently as possible by solving the everyday challenges that an illness may present. These challenges could include getting out of the bath or to learning how to get dressed when only using one arm. The British Association of Occupational Therapy (BAOT) states that “OT is a challenging and dynamic profession which makes a valuable difference in people’s lives”. Therapy for Independence makes a difference to you by providing practical solutions to problems that restrict daily living.
