Occupational Therapists are health professionals who assist people to overcome difficulties or limitations in their daily life. These difficulties may be caused through accident or injury, through disease or illness, psychological or emotional difficulties, developmental delay or the effects of ageing. These problems can be physical, cognitive, perceptual or psychological in nature.

Occupational Therapists work with people from all walks of life. People of all ages. People with or without disability. People of all cultures and backgrounds. Occupational Therapists work together with people and their life situations to make decisions that are both personally meaningful and therapeutic.

The Occupational Therapist’s goal is to assist each individual to reduce the difficulty they experience, to move from dependence to independence, and maximise their safety, personal productivity, well-being and quality of life.
