Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate fully in the activities of their everyday life. It does this by using specific activities to enable people with a vision impairment, to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the physical environment to better support participation.
