Programes: Bachelor of Occupational Therapy (B.O.T)

Occupational Therapy is a healthcare profession offering support to people with physical, psychological and social problems to enable them to live life to the fullest. The main goal of occupational therapy is to enable individuals to engage in everyday activities they want and need to do or are expected to do when faced with illness, injury, disability or challenging life circumstances or events. These are activities that have meaning and value to the individual. Occupational therapists can support individuals in developing, improving, sustaining, or restoring a level of independence that is desired by the individual by using activities throughout the assessment and treatment process.

Occupational therapy services are provided by qualified professionals with knowledge, clinical reasoning, and decision making skills related to occupational performance. Occupational therapists must have a deep understanding of the nature of occupations, in addition to knowledge of anatomy, neurophysiology, development, social processes, personality, and medical conditions (Hooper & Wood, 2014). The occupational therapy process includes thorough evaluation, intervention, and outcome targeting in order to promote an individual's health and wellness.
