About Occupational Therapy
Occupational therapy allows you to organize and perform everyday tasks and activities that you consider essential, such as:
– Taking care of yourself and other people
– Being fulfilled on a personal, academic, and professional level
– Having fun, hobbies, and interests
– Developing, primarily through play
The Professional Code defines the field of practice of occupational therapy as follows:
“Evaluate a person’s functional abilities, determine and implement a treatment and intervention plan, develop, restore or maintain skills, compensate for disabilities, reduce handicap situations and adapt the environment in order to promote the optimal autonomy of human beings in interaction with their environment.”
Our online occupational therapists help people with problems related to their physical or mental health or to prevent the onset of such problems. They also work with healthy individuals, people with issues relating to social integration, or maintaining an active life for seniors. Our online occupational therapists help individuals maintain their independence in a living environment that meets their needs and preferences through education, rehabilitation, and remediation. The goal of occupational therapy is to promote autonomy and enable people to have a better quality of life.
Our online occupational therapists will assess a person’s physical and mental health condition and its effects on the multiple functions of their body and performance of activities. They will also evaluate the physical and human environment of a person, the different types of activities carried out by the person, and their personal routines, and determine the degree of autonomy of the person in carrying out daily activities.
Online occupational therapy sessions include an assessment of the patient’s physical and mental condition, objective setting, and participation in activities of daily living (self-care, work, and leisure) in order to provide patients with essential learning to achieve greater independence.
