It focuses on adapting the environment according to the patient, and teaching and educating them in the necessary skills needed in performing daily activities. This was also known as ‘Moral Treatment’ in the past.
The job of an Occupational Therapist is to treat injured, ill, or disabled patients using therapies to enable them do their everyday activities. They help these patients control their motor and sensory skills, so that they recover and improve from their present condition.
