Occupational therapy is client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well- being through occupation. Occupations refer to the everyday activities that people do as individuals, in families and with communities to occupy time and bring meaning and purpose to life. Occupations include things people need to, want to and are expected to do.

For a child, purposeful activities such as swinging, climbing, jumping, buttoning, drawing and writing are considered their “occupation.” Occupational therapists use their unique expertise to help children prepare for and perform important learning and developmental activities by facilitating social skills development, motor development, emergent literacy, and the development of adaptive and self-care skills.
