Abstract [en]

This chapter surveys the classification systems for identifying candidates for occupational therapy. Clients1 are diagnosed with medical conditions causing functional limitations and restrictions in activities of daily living, such as self-care, and in home, work, and leisure activities. Occupational therapy core contents, purposes, and goals are defined. The theoretical basis, fundamental principles, ethical considerations, and therapeutic media are outlined, and the occupational therapist’s (OT’s2) role is clarified.
