TEAMability’s Occupational Therapists help individuals who have physical, sensory, or cognitive disabilities gain independence. They help remove barriers that affect a person’s emotional, social, and physical needs using everyday activities, exercises and assistive technology. Occupational therapy helps individuals with disabilities to:
- Develop fine motor skills and improve eye-hand coordination so they can grasp and release objects and develop good handwriting, computer skills or vocational skills.
- Master basic life skills such as bathing, getting dressed, brushing teeth, and self-feeding.
- Learn positive behaviors and social skills by practicing how they manage frustration and anger.
- Acquire special equipment to help build their independence. These include wheelchairs, splints, bathing equipment, dressing devices, and written or spoken communication aids.
