What is Occupational Therapy and how do I access this service?
Occupational Therapists work with individuals to promote 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 factors, such as disability, that impact 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.
Occupational Therapists can work with students across a wide variety of areas, including adapting to life as a university student, managing routine, participating in social and leisure activities, managing academic work, skills for living away from home and navigating specific student tasks like group projects. Your Disability Officer can arrange for you to meet with an Occupational Therapist, or you can make an enquiry by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
