Occupational Therapy in Laredo, TX


What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy (or OT) involves treatments to help patients with a physical, mental or developmental condition develop, recover, or maintain their daily living and work skills. Occupational therapy is client-centered and places a premium on the progress towards the individual client's goals. Occupational therapy interventions focus on increasing participation and performance of daily activities, especially those that are meaningful to the client, by adapting the environment, modifying the task, teaching the skill, and educating the client and his or her family.
