Occupational Therapy (CCS)
Occupational therapy is a proven treatment delivered by a licensed health care professional that helps people independently perform activities of daily life despite impairments or limitations. Simply put, “occupation” means any meaningful activity which “occupies” our time. For example, a child has the occupations of learning, playing, or being a friend, while an adult may engage in working, parenting, and managing a home. Reduced participation in any of these occupations due to activity limitations or illness may lead to a lifestyle of inactivity and the possibility of subsequent further health decline. Occupational therapists work with children, adolescents, and adults who possess or are at risk for physical disabilities, cognitive disabilities, psychosocial dysfunctions, mental illnesses, developmental or learning disorders, maladaptive behaviors, or other disorders and conditions.
