American Occupational Therapy Association defines Occupational Therapist as someone who “helps people across the lifespan participation in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, injury rehabilitation and providing support for the senior citizens and experiencing physical and cognitive changes”.

Occupational Therapy is a client-centered health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. The primary goal of Occupational Therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational Therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, though a sequence of actions called the Occupational Therapy Process. There are several versions of this process as described by numerous scholars. All practice frameworks include the component of evaluation (or assessment), intervention and a framework though which occupational therapists assist and contribute to promoting health and ensure structures & consistency among therapist.
