Skills Strengthening: OTs help individuals learn skills for everyday activities such as cooking a meal or getting ready for school or work. OTs break down tasks into their smaller, more manageable, parts for the individual to practice and master.
Task Modifying: OTs can modify everyday tasks to provide an appropriate level of challenge for safety and independence.
Managing Sensory Environments: OTs advise on how to modify environments to minimise anxiety for those who are easily overwhelmed by touch, taste, sound, light or social interactions.
Executive Skills: OTs help with building executive skills such as planning, organisation, time management, working memory, response inhibition, and managing emotions and thoughts in order to function effectively.
