Health and Wellness of Children
An Occupational Therapy Perspective
"Occupational therapy practitioners apply their knowledge about engagement in occupation to help clients who may be experiencing disease, impairment, disability, dissastisfaction, or adverse circumstances to participate in their daily life in a manner that supports their health and well-being. By working with clients from this perspective, occupational therapy practitioners use everyday life activities therapeutically to improve the health and quality of life of consumers and to prevent future disease or illness" (AOTA, 2002, p. 610).
