Occupational therapists evaluate and treat patients who have problems with sensory processing, coordination, motor function and cognition, because of a neurological illness or injury. Patients who are admitted with spinal cord injuries are often extremely limited in their ability to move; occupational therapists recommend adapted call bells and other assistive devices that facilitate independence. Patients with brain injuries may require behavioral approaches. Occupational therapists may also teach compensatory strategies to assure that patients are can safely participate in meaningful activities. The goal of therapy is to maximize function to allow the patient to be transferred to an appropriate rehabilitation center for further rehabilitation. Some patients, upon discharge, are able to return home and receive occupational therapy there or as an outpatient at a private facility.
