Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists are healthcare professionals who evaluate and treat people from infants to the elderly who have health-related conditions that limit their abilities to function in their various occupations of everyday living.  Occupations of everyday living for adults include and involve basic self-care routines, work, parenting, care giving, arm and hand skills, visual and reading skills.  Occupations of everyday living for infants and children include and involve feeding, play skills, learning skills, self-help skills, sensory processing, fine and gross motor skills, and social skills. 
All Occupational Therapists are graduates of accredited universities and are licensed by the State of Colorado.  Current graduates obtain a Master’s Degree.
