Removing Barriers​

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.

There are over 134,369 occupational therapists employed in the United States.


TEAMability’s occupational therapy services focus on the individual’s and family’s goals and include:

  • An individualized evaluation, during which the client/family and occupational therapist determine the individual’s goals,
  • Customized interventions to improve the person’s ability to perform daily activities and reach the goals, and
  • An outcomes evaluation to ensure that the goals are being met and/or make changes to the intervention plan.
