O’ahu Occupational Therapy

Increasing independence through occupational therapy

Occupational therapy is skilled intervention that helps you be more independence in your daily activities like self-care, leisure and work activities. Occupational therapy is about helping you do the day-to-day tasks that occupy your time, sustain you and enable you to contribute to the wider community.

When people have strokes, sustain injuries, or have chronic mental or physical health problems, occupational therapists help them engage in occupations or everyday activities that are personally meaningful, socially satisfying, and culturally relevant to help restore their function and independence.

Interventions used by occupational therapists may include working on:

  • Rehabilitation of cognitive deficits (memory, attention, complex reasoning)
  • Motor function and strength
  • Gross motor and fine motor skills
  • Sensory function (vision, visual perceptual functioning, perception of touch)

Another important area where your occupational therapist can help is helping you change your environment to maximize your abilities. Your therapist will also see if specialized tools and equipment could help you in your daily activities.

All occupational therapists must graduate from an accredited program in occupational therapy and pass a national certification examination. Occupational therapists are trained to work closely with other members of your rehabilitation team to help you reach your goals.
