Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy (OT) is an allied health profession which abides by the regulations set by the Health Professions Council of South Africa (HPCSA).

These include: member of the family, work, play, scholastic performance, social-emotional, self-care (dressing, eating, sleeping etc.) or parenting. Occupational Therapists specialize in a number of different areas, including paediatrics; physical rehabilitation; mental health; geriatrics and community empowerment.
