The Role of Occupational Therapists at Maine AgrAbility

Maine AgrAbility is able to provide on-site visits by staff who are occupational therapists (OTs) to discuss specific situations and make general recommendations for adaptive equipment or techniques. OTs are professional healthcare providers trained in analyzing work tasks and work patterns and can suggest modifications to work tasks, tools, and equipment to
suit the specific needs of individual workers.
