OUTCOME OF THE STUDY PROGRAM

Contemporary approach to occupational therapy is based on creating new environments and enhancing the existing ones in which people with different abilities may live with dignity. Present-day conceptions of occupational therapy shift the focus from reducing disability to prevention of disability and providing opportunities for extensive participation. Namely, if at any time in someone’s life (at birth or later), a disease, injury or disability occurs and prevents a person from functioning effectively and independently in one or more occupational areas, occupational therapy provides intervention that helps restoring functions, maintaining the level of functioning, and / or prevents the expected deficits. The occupational therapists help their clients participate more effectively and independently in daily activities, thus increasing the quality of their life.
