Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy offers treatment for patients with sensory processing difficulties and cognitive disorders. The goal of the therapy is to develop, improve and restore mental, physical, social and professional quality of life to the highest possible level. In addition, it aims to enable individuals to achieve maximum independence and personal competence in their daily lives.

 

Definition Occupational therapy from WOFT World Federation of Occupational Therapists

Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational therapists achieve this outcome by working with people and communities to enhance their ability to engage in the occupations they want to, need to, or are expected to do, or by modifying the occupation or the environment to better support their occupational engagement.(WFOT 2012)

 

Definition "Occupation"

In occupational therapy, occupations refer to the everyday activities that people do as individuals, in families and with communities to occupy time and bring meaning and purpose to life. Occupations include things people need to, want to and are expected to do.

Logopaedics

Definition Speech Therapy

As a science, it is at the intersection of medical, linguistic, educational and psychological sciences and focuses on etiology, assessment* and intervention ** of communication and swallowing disorders.

Logopaedics is concerned with the diagnosis and therapy of voice and speech deficiencies and swallowing disorders. These problems are often associated with children but can also occur in conjunction with neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s or Multiple sclerosis (MS) or as the result of a stroke.

Using specific treatment, tailored to the individual, logopaedics aims to improve the communication abilities of patients in all age groups and to support or re-establish their integration into society.
