They work with individuals who suffer from a mentally, physically, developmentally, or emotionally disabling condition. Occupational therapists use treatments to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of their patients. The therapist helps clients not only improve their basic motor functions and reasoning abilities, but also compensate for permanent loss of function. The goal is to help these clients have independent, productive, and satisfying lives.

Observation, palpation, and postural screenings are also very useful in helping the therapist to determine a particular problem.
