Occupational therapy

Introduction to occupational therapy

What is occupational therapy?

Occupational therapy is a type of customer-oriented rehabilitation aimed at supporting the customer’s ability to function. The therapy sessions seek to strengthen the customer’s ability to participate in and carry out activities that are important to them. The goal of therapy is to improve the customer’s capabilities, skills and daily environments in order to increase their competence and satisfaction in everyday life.

Occupational therapy can be carried out at our facilities or in the customer’s own everyday environment, such as at home, in a housing unit, at a day care centre or school or during leisure activities. In addition to individual therapy, Therapy House Tonus offers occupational therapy assessments, sensory integration assessments, guidance and counselling for parents, consultation visits, adult group therapy and work counselling.

Why occupational therapy?

Among other things, occupational therapy can help with challenges affecting areas such as social skills, executive functions, sensory regulation, self-regulation, sensory integration, emotional life, gross motor skills, abnormal muscle tone, fine motor skills, visual motor skills and using a pen.
