Abstract [en]

This chapter surveys the intrinsic, occupational, temporal, and environmental adaptive interventions used in occupational therapy. Therapeutic media are outlined, and the occupational therapist’s role is clarified. The chapters of this part of the handbook exemplify how OTs manage the clients’ various adaptations aimed at facilitate his or her (Fig. 3.1) occupational performance. The clinical applications of the four major factors of adaptations are illustrated through the case of John, a man suffering from paraplegia. Fig. 3.1

The figure shows the OT’s role in managing the occupational therapy interventions aimed at adaptation of the client’s internal and external environment. The figure is a stylized Ankh-sign.
