Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is therapy based on performing the meaningful activities of daily life (self-care skills, education, work or social interaction) despite impairments or limitations in physical or mental functioning. Occupational therapy is for individuals of all ages to improve skills that help them perform daily tasks at home, school, work and play. Occupational therapists are allied health professionals. Their education includes the study of human growth and development, with specific emphasis on the social, emotional and physical effects of illness and injury. Specific services offered at Bellin include but are not limited to activities of daily living training, visual/perceptual training, neuromuscular education, adaptive equipment training, cognitive training and treatment of specific physical impairments.
