What are "occupations" of daily life?
Occupations are "everyday activities that people do as individuals, in families, & with communities to occupy time and bring meaning and purpose to life. Occupations include things that people need to, want to, and are expected to do." (World Federation of OT, 2012a, para. 2).
"Occupational therapy maximizes health, well-being, and quality of life for all people, populations, and communities through effective solutions that facilitate participation in everyday living."
-American Occupational Therapy Association, Vision 2025
"All the best educational programs around the world combine elements that stimulate both a child's physical and mental development- for in truth there is no split between the two."
-Gordon Dryden & Dr Jeannette Vos
