Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across the lifespan participate in everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping recover from injury to regain skills, and providing adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes. Each treatment is based on the specific needs of the patient. Conditions treated include, but are not limited to, arthritis, fractures, tendon injuries, and repetitive motion disorders.

Diagnoses could include but are not limited to stroke, dementia, and Parkinson’s disease. A variety of treatments are used depending on the diagnoses. For speech and language disorders the speech therapist would focus on sound, voice pitch, utilizing words and gestures to create sentences. Difficulty with swallowing might include an order of diet modifications and strategies to eat safely to prevent aspiration/pneumonia.
