Occupational Therapy is the therapeutic use of self-care, work, education, play, leisure, and social activities to increase independent function, enhance development, promote health and wellbeing, and prevent disability. It is indicated when people lose their ability to carry out their everyday activities, due to temporary or permanent illness, disability, environmental limitations, and developmental delay.Occupational Therapy course is offered at University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg
Occupational therapists assess a person’s ability to engage in daily activities. They then engage the person in meaningful and culturally appropriate activities to maximise their functioning and wellbeing. This engagement empowers the person to be as independent as possible, and enhances dignity and quality of life at work, school, at home, and during leisure. Intervention may include adapting the person’s environment to help them to cope. Occupational Therapy is practised in a wide range of public, private, and voluntary settings, like the person’s home, schools, workplaces, health centres, supported accommodation, housing for seniors, rehabilitation centres, hospitals, and forensic services
