Occupational Therapy Month

 

October is Occupational Therapy Month.

Occupational therapists, often called OTs, are the primary providers of occupational therapy services. 

OTs are:

  • university educated professionals that apply their specialized knowledge and skills to recommend a course of preventive or corrective action that will help people lead more productive and satisfying lives,
  • trained to understand not only the medical and physical limitations of a disability or injury, but also the psychosocial factors that affect the functioning of the whole person – their health and their wellness, and
  • a regulated medical profession; occupational therapists must be registered with their provincial regulator in order to practice legally in Canada.

Congratulations to all OT’s!!
