Occupational Therapy Month

April signifies the start of Occupational Therapy Month, a whole month dedicated to the wonderful field of occupational therapy. Occupational therapists (OTs) help patients to participate in everyday activities. Occupational therapists are experts in activity analysis. They identify personal and environmental strengths and barriers to select the appropriate match of activity demands and skills to achieve optimal outcomes. For every age and ability, occupational therapists provide care to improve the quality of life for each patient. Occupational therapists first established a role in pediatrics in 1919 – and have been helping children for over 100 years!
