Occupational therapy is the art and science of facilitating human participation in occupation (i.e., self-care, leisure and work tasks) to restore, reinforce and enhance performance, facilitate learning of skills and functions essential for adaptation and productivity, diminish pathology, and promote health. Occupational therapists use self-care, work, homemaking, play and leisure activities as therapeutic occupations.
