"I am an occupational therapist, an obscure profession if there ever was one. We've opted for wholeness nearly a century ago and have been at odds with the system ever since. We don't fix people, you see: we simply find a way to meaning, balance and justice" Rachel Thibeault

The Department of Occupational Therapy at the University of Pretoria

Welcome to the University of Pretoria's Department of Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy is the art and science of guiding people with activity limitations to perform the important daily activities (self-care, leisure and work tasks).  The aim is to optimise functional abilities so that people are able to participate in their communities.

Occupational Therapy is provided for people who are at risk of occupational dysfunction, for example, people with developmental delays or learning disabilities or physical and/or psycho-social dysfunctions.
