Occupational therapy is an applied science and health profession that provides skilled treatment to help individuals develop, regain or maintain the skills necessary to participate in all facets of their lives.  Occupational therapy gives people the “skills for the job of living” necessary for living meaningful and satisfying lives.

In school, occupational therapy practitioners help students to learn, play and interact with others.  Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants can help students to participate and enjoy everyday activities at school.
