What do Occupational Therapists do?

Many of us work with or around occupational therapists - but what do they actually do?

Occupational therapists (OTs) help people of all ages to improve their ability to perform tasks in their daily living and working environments, working with individuals who have conditions that are mentally, physically, developmentally, socially or emotionally disabling. They often make recommendations about equipment provision (which is where we usually interact with them) but their job is unusually diverse.

In her latest blog, independent Occupational Therapist Hayley Green BScOT explains more about the role of occupational therapists and provides practical examples from the personal injury sector.
