Generally, following the functional assessment, therapy recommendations are developed that involve either enhancing the person’s skills in the areas where they are showing deficits, or amending their environment (e.g. with assistive equipment or other resources) to mitigate their difficulties. Therapy may also incorporate a combination of both approaches and usually involves the key supports for the person (e.g. parents or teachers).At the very least, OT assessments usually involve evaluating the following basic skill areas:
