The occupational therapist evaluates a person’s performance with activities of daily living to assist in maximizing functional independence. Personal care, mobility, and work activities are assessed through interview and functional evaluation in the ALS Clinic. Recommendations for upper extremity strengthening and range of motion, assistive devices, durable medical equipment, and home or outpatient therapies are made.
