Environmental modifications

Occupational therapy practitioners recognize the importance of a person’s access to participate in community life and meaningful occupations. In this context, occupational therapy services include, but not limited to, development of reasonable accommodations (such as modification of work and home environments), independent living skills, and compensatory strategies that will minimize the functional limitations imposed by physical or mental impairments. Occupational therapists consult with architects, engineers, building contractors, business owners and managers, professional organizations, disability groups, and consumers to determine how to create accessible environments within the parameters agreed upon by relevant authorities.

Occupational Therapy Envronmental Modification Programs can include rearranging furniture, building ramps, widening doorways, grab bars, special toilet seats, and other safety equipment to use performance capabilities to their fullest
