According to The American Occupational Therapy Association, Inc.’s website, Occupational therapy practitioners believe that “health is strongly influenced by [individuals] having choice and control in everyday occupations” (CAOT, 2002, p.31), and as such, occupation is a determinant of health. “Occupations are purposeful and meaningful daily activities that fill a person’s time” (AOTA, 2008). These can be activities that individuals need or want to do that relate to self-care, play or leisure, their work and/or home, and community-based tasks. Through participation in their daily occupations, individuals can positively influence their health (Wilcock, 2006).
