Annapolis Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapist - Sheri Barnes, OTR/L, M.Ac.

What is Occupational Therapy?

Occupational therapy (OT) is a health and rehabilitation profession that helps people improve, regain, develop, and build skills that are important for independent living. The overall goal of OT is to increase a person’s ability to perform daily tasks and activities as independently as possible with the greatest amount of self-satisfaction.

Occupational therapy practitioners work with people of all ages who, because of illness, injuries, including work related injury, have developmental or psychological impairment and need specialized assistance in learning skills to enable them to lead independent, productive lives, and to gain their highest functional level.

Because occupational therapy can prevent injury, or worsening of existing condition or disabilities, and promotes independent functioning in individuals who may otherwise require institutional or other long-term care, OT helps keep health care costs down and maximizes the quality of life for the individual, their family, and other care givers.

Occupational therapists (OTs) work in many different settings and with persons of all ages. For example they may work in public and/or private schools with children who are learning disabled, physically challenged, and/or developmentally delayed. Medical settings (e.g. hospitals, rehabilitation clinics, wellness clinics, and nursing homes) are traditional sites for OTs to work usually with clients who have had their lives interrupted by acute and chronic illnesses and conditions (e.g. head injuries, strokes, depression, arthritis, injury, etc.).

Patient Consulting Services

In addition to treating patients directly, Occupational therapists are often called on to evaluate clients, plan appropriate treatment and supervise someone else who works directly with the client.
