OUTPATIENT OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY SERVICES
The goal of Outpatient Occupational Therapy is to enable an individual to carry out their activities of daily living, which include those performed at work, home, school and the community, as independently as possible. Following a thorough evaluation, which includes an occupational therapy assessment of physical function as well as cognitive and daily living skills, if appropriate, an occupational therapist will tailor a treatment plan dedicated to restoring your maximum functional ability. Your therapist will work individually with you and will closely monitor your progress and modify your occupational therapy program as required.
