When you are referred for occupational therapy, you will receive a thorough examination by a licensed occupational therapist. This exam includes a review of your medical condition, functional abilities and prior level of function. Additional examination may be done to assess the following:

  • Strength
  • Range of motion
  • Coordination
  • Cognition
  • Sensation
  • Visual perceptual skills
  • Ability to perform self-care activities (activities of daily living)
  • Ability to assume previous roles, such as parent and/or employee
After your initial evaluation, you and your therapist will develop a treatment plan based upon the results and a discussion of your personal goals. Treatment will be adapted to maximize your independence with self-care.
