Department of Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being and enabling participation in everyday life activities. Occupational therapists work with individuals, groups, communities and populations to enhance their capacity and ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do. Occupational therapists also may work collaboratively with clients to modify tasks, activities and/or environments to better support their engagement and participation [adapted from World Federation of Occupational Therapists, 2012].
