An occupational therapist (OT) is a healthcare provider who specializes in helping people of all ages achieve independence in their daily activities or occupations. This includes dressing, cooking, eating, working, and participating in hobbies. An OT uses adaptive equipment and helps patients of all ages adjust their environment and organize tasks to support their abilities.

An OT typically:

  • Evaluates a patient's ability to perform activities and creates a customized treatment plan based on medical history, lifestyle, needs, and activity goals

  • Performs home, school, and job site assessments

  • Educates patients and teaches them the skills to participate in their activities

  • Recommends and provides training in the use of adaptive equipment, such as splints, bathing equipment, dressing devices, ergonomic tools and utensils, and specialized computer keyboards

  • Provides support and guidance to family members and caregivers

  • Collaborates with other healthcare providers, such as physical therapists, speech therapists, doctors, and social workers

An OT may also be known as a registered occupational therapist (OTR).
