Abstract: The development of a fundamental knowledge base for occupational
therapy has led us to formulate a formal science of the profession. However, this presents
us with a conceptual challenge. We must ask the following questions: 1) What other
knowledge bases will be connected with this science of occupational therapy, and how
will they be connected? 2) What are the subjects of study? 3) What is the methodology
for approaching those subjects of study from the perspective of psychiatric treatment; and
4) What are the predictions or hypotheses that this science can offer to help develop the
profession of occupational therapy? In this paper, we discuss the conceptual levels that
are generated from a thorough study of the fundamental components of the profession.
These conceptual levels establish the theoretical limits of the scientific and technological
knowledge of this profession. Further, we lay the foundation for a cognitive spectrum that
links these theoretical bases with the practical applications of occupational therapy
