Occupational therapy is therapy through the use of everyday activities. This therapy focuses on the progress of goals, adapting the environment and teaching the skill in the best way possible. Unlike physical therapy, occupational therapy deals with fine-motor, perception, cognitive, and sensory skills. 

Examples of work done by occupational therapists can include work on fine motor skills, addressing hand-eye coordination, coping with behavioral disorders, coordination skills, evaluate need for specialized equipment, and work to improve focus and social skills.
