In the most simplest terms, occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants help people across their lifespan, and throughout different diagnosis', participate in the things they want and need to do through using therapeutic use of everyday activities, which in definition are occupations, the activities that "occupy" your time. These "occupations" changes throughout the lifespan, for example a childs occupation is to play, socialize, feed themselves etc.
