Occupational Therapy (OT) Support

“The OT sessions were so helpful, gave me new confidence and calm every single time and it helped me accomplish my tasks for college while feeling supported.”

Occupational therapy is a client centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well-being through occupation. Occupational therapists use the term occupation to describe all the things you do as a student, and have an understanding of how disability can possibly affect people's ability to do the day-to-day things that are important for them. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable you to participate in the activities of everyday life as a student (Association of Occupational Therapists of Ireland, 2017).
