What can you expect from an Occupational Therapist?
Your occupational therapist will perform a comprehensive evaluation of your physical and functional capabilities. The therapist will then collaborate with you to determine your goals for therapy and what outcome you would like to achieve. Based upon your goals, your therapist will create a plan of care to target your needs using evidence based practices. To reinforce your treatment in the clinic, your occupational therapist will establish a personalized home program for you to complete regularly.
