What can be accomplished through OT?

Summit’s occupational therapists work with adults and children in the following areas:

They help these patients develop, recover, improve, or maintain the skills needed for daily living and working. Some of these skills may include improving fine motor skills, and hand-eye coordination for handwriting, cooking, and work-related tasks; learning or re-learning basic self-care tasks (such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing their teeth, and feeding themselves); and building strength and endurance needed to participate in an individual’s hobbies and meaningful tasks.

Occupational therapists can provide specialized equipment evaluations, for wheelchairs, bathing equipment, dressing devices, or communication aids, to empower individuals to lead a functional and independent lifestyle.

Finally, occupational therapists assist in improving attention, coping skills, and social skills to allow development of interpersonal skills for a variety of relationships, and maintaining positive behaviors in all environments.
