OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY

Despite the name, occupational therapy is not just used to learn work-related skills. What it does do is help you fine-tune or re-learn tasks you need for daily activities. Yes, this may include work-related tasks but it also includes dressing, cooking, cleaning and other home-related tasks.
