An occupational therapist treats injured, ill, or disabled clients of all ages. They work with people who seek to overcome their physical, developmental, cognitive, or emotional challenges. Occupational therapists help you develop, recover, improve, and maintain the skills needed for daily life. Occupational therapy helps the person learn how to do everyday things like eating, focusing on learning, getting dressed, and writing with ease.

Occupational therapy at Sounderic

The role of an occupational therapist ranges from assessment to formulating a plan to help you achieve your goals.

Our expert occupational therapists begin with an evaluation, where you share your goals with them, and based on this discussion and clinical assessment the OT will formulate unique plans that can help you manage your daily activities more efficiently.

The duration of occupational therapy varies from person to person. Throughout the therapy, the occupational therapist will review your progress with you in order to assess whether set goals are being achieved or not and adjust the program as per requirements.

If you need occupational therapy, our compassionate therapists can help you master the skills for living an independent, creative, and socially adapted lifestyle.

Occupational Therapy for Autism Adults

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a neurodevelopmental condition characterized by impaired social communication skills, restricted and repetitive behaviors, and isolated areas of interest. Occupational therapists evaluate the current developmental levels of children and adults with autism, aiming to improve their ability to self-regulate emotions and participate in social interactions. 

Common Occupational Therapy Interventions for Autism:

  • Aim at sensory integration and sensory-based strategies.

  • Focusing on mental health and well-being.

  • Working on emotional development and self-regulation

  • Organizing peer groups, social participation, and play activities.

  • Focusing on self-care activities to help with daily tasks such as bathing, eating, and getting dressed.

  • Emphasizing motor development.

  • Easing the transition from adolescence to adulthood and helping them acquire skills to live an independent and healthy life

  • Using cognitive behavioral approaches to support positive behaviors.

Occupational therapy exercises for adults

Practicing occupational therapy exercises is a great way to reach your goals. Here are some occupational therapy activities for adults that can be done independently:

Memory games- Many OT exercises are designed to improve memory and mental recall. If you are on your own, you can do crossword puzzles, put together actual puzzles, do craft activities, read or play games like Sodoku to keep your mind in motion!

Relaxation and rest methods- Exercises to reduce anxiety and tension are popular parts of OT programs for seniors. Breathing exercises are an important aspect of physical therapy because they help the patient to put their body into a state of rest. Breathing exercises can be done on your own and can even help you improve the quality of your sleep if you do them before bed or naptime!

Leg extensions- Muscle and joint pain are a common complaint for elderly OT patients. Leg extensions are a simple, equipment-free activity that can help stretch the muscles and improve range of motion.

Stringing beads- enhances fine motor skills that can be used to set out vitamins, supplements, and prescriptions in a weekly pill tray, thereby helping to maintain independence with medication.

Yoga- help improve balance, flexibility, muscle tone, focus, and concentration. They can also help with fall prevention and an enhanced sleep quality.

Hand strengthening exercises for adults 

Wrist Extension and Flexion-  Start with your forearm on a table, move your hand up and down, bending at your wrist. When you’re done, repeat with your palm facing up.

Thumb Extension and Flexion- Start with your palm open, as if you were signaling the number 5. Then, practice moving your thumb over to your little finger, signaling the number 4. Continue to move your thumb back and forth between these 2 positions.

Inner Arm Stretch- Place your hands in your lap and interlace your fingers. Then stretch your affected arm palm-side up. You should feel this stretch all the way up your inner arm. Hold this stretch for 20 seconds and release. Then, repeat on the other side.

Wrist Stretch- With your fingers still interlaced, gently bend your affected wrist backward and get a nice stretch there. Hold this stretch for 20 seconds and release. Repeat on the other side.

Pinching Clothespins with Each Finger- To gently improve finger strength, take a clothespin and practice pinching it with different fingers. Start with your thumb and index finger, then move onto your thumb and middle finger, ring finger, then pinky. Using your thumb, index finger and middle finger is a functional ‘tripod grip’.
