Occupational Therapists (OTs) are experts in function, taking into consideration all the aspects of a person and their environment in which they work, play, and take care of themselves! This includes the physical, cognitive, and emotional components, as well as their physical and social environments.
OTs are rehabilitation professionals who help clients to return to the activities they want to and need to do, often after an injury or illness.
Meridian Rehab’s OTs specialize in a wide range of rehabilitation services. These include:
- Chronic pain rehabilitation
- Driving Assessments, Training and Vehicle Modification
- Dysphagia assessment and intervention

- Pediatric services (sensory integration therapy, autism services etc.)
- Post-concussion rehabilitation

Our OTs also often work in a case management role, organizing and overseeing rehab programs with interdisciplinary team members.
