Occupational Therapy Month
October is Occupational Therapy Month.
Occupational therapists, often called OTs, are the primary providers of occupational therapy services.
- 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!!
