Occupational therapists focus on increasing independence and success in the activities which you (the client) find meaningful! This can include:
- Personal hygiene
- Independent living skills
- Leisure engagement
- Community engagement
- Social participation
Occupational Therapists increase independence and success by addressing underlying skill deficits which impact engagement, such as motor skills, cognition and executive functioning, sensory processing, and interoception. Occupational Therapists specifically tailor services to the individual client by considering all contexts and environments, while identifying underlying supports and barriers which may enhance or inhibit progress in meaningful areas of life.
At Common Threads, you will find Occupational Therapists with a variety of background interests and specialties including but not limited to sensory integration, interoceptive awareness, co-regulation, trauma-informed practice, and physical health and wellness.
