WELCOME TO THE OCCUPATIONAL & PHYSICAL THERAPY PAGE
“Occupational Therapy is as a profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational Therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support participation” World Federation of Occupational Therapists
