Allied Health Assistant (Occupational Therapy [OT])
Occupational therapy focuses on promoting health and wellbeing by enabling people to participate in the everyday life, such as self-care activities including preparing food; productive activities such as education, work, volunteering and caring for others; and leisure/social activities, such as being part of a community group, engaging in a hobby, and being part of a friendship group.
An Allied Health Assistant can play a crucial role in enabling people experiencing disability to identify and implement methods that support their participation in a variety of activities. This may include modifying an activity or an environment to suit the individual.
