Occupational Therapists are health care professionals who assist in developing or maintaining life roles and activities at home and in the community when one's ability to function independently has been challenged by accident, handicap, emotional problems, developmental difficulties or disease.

OTs use a variety of assessment and treatment techniques to address goals, including: training of daily living activities and community life skills; prescription of specialized equipment; evaluation and modification of home, work or school environments; and related education and counselling

Therapists in private practice charge a fee for service and can be accessed directly and insurance companies may cover this cost. In hospital settings, a doctors referral is required and the cost is covered by OHIP. You may be able to access Occupational Therapy through Community Care Access Centres.
