Occupational Therapy - Definitions Part 1


When building a house, one typically begins with drawing a plan, having the plan passed by various experts and procedures and once approval is given, we begin with the foundation. So too, in explaining a profession or the scope of the profession, let us begin with basics. Some definitions.

In this post we will start with the top. The World Federation of Occupational Therapists provides the following definition: "Occupational Therapy is a profession concerned with promoting health and wellbeing through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate, or by modifying the environment to better support participation."
