Occupational Therapy helps people engage and participate in the activities and roles that are meaningful to them. In adults these range from self-care activities (sleep, toileting, intimacy) to productive activities (working, childcare, caregiving) to leisure activities (social interaction, hobbies). In children, occupations may include eating, sleeping, playing, building independence, and participating in school or activities.
