Occupational Therapy Assistants and Aides

Occupational therapy is used to help provide rehabilitation services to persons with mental, physical, emotional, or developmental disabilities.

Occupational therapy emphasizes improvement of the activities of daily living—including such functions as personal hygiene, dressing, eating, and cooking.
