What does it look like?

Occupational Therapists work with their cllients by taking a therapeutic approach to everyday activities. Broadly, this means that Occupational Therapists are responsible for helping clients develop, recover, improve a condition or injury, as well as maintain the skills needed to execute daily activities. In general, Occupational Therapists are responsible for a wide range of duties and tasks related to client care. Depending on the setting in which they work, the roles of an Occupational Therapist often include:

  • Evaluating a patient’s condition and needs
  • Developing treatment plans to address a patient’s needs and help them meet specific goals
  • Assessing a patient’s home and/or work environment and recommending adaptations to fit the patient’s needs and improve independence
  • Training patients and their caregivers to use special equipment
  • Assessing and documenting progress for evaluation, billing, and reporting purposes
