Occupational Therapy -> Executive Function -> Organization

Organization

Organization can refer to maintaining physical organization of materials or organization of thoughts. Organization is important in daily activities in order to stay attentive, aware of one’s schedule and plans, find important or required materials for tasks, and to complete tasks efficiently. Occupational therapists can help individuals determine and utilize strategies for organization in a variety of settings (school, home, work, etc.).
