Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy is a skilled intervention that is intended for children and adults with health conditions that significantly affect their ability to manage their daily lives and need to regain their independence.

IPT's occupational therapist uses the latest therapeutic techniques to help patients with physical and cognitive
deficits to perform the activities of daily living (ADLs). We specialize in the evaluation and treatment of adults as well as pediatrics with a variety of conditions.

Common occupational therapy interventions include helping children with disabilities to participate fully in school and social situations, helping people recovering from injury to regain skills, and providing supports for older adults experiencing physical and cognitive changes.
