Occupational therapy is a discipline that aims to promote health by enabling people to perform meaningful and purposeful activities. Occupational therapists work with individuals who suffer from disabling conditions by utilizing treatments that develop, recover, or maintain clients' activities of daily living. Activities of daily living vary from individual to individual. Examples may range from basic self-care activities such as eating, dressing, bathing, communicating, problem solving, mobility, to things such as meal preparation, driving, returning to work, play, and school and care giving. The goal of occupational therapy is to help clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives.
