It’s Occupational Therapy Month! Although we are not on campus nowadays, the Student Occupational Therapy Association would still like to share our incredible profession.
What is Occupational Therapy (OT) you ask?
Occupational therapy is the only profession that helps people across the lifespan to do the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of daily activities (occupations). Occupational therapy practitioners enable people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, and prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability. (AOTA)
In these last few weeks, you have probably realized the importance of being able to participate in purposeful and meaningful occupations. Being able to engage in occupations that are important gives one a sense of belonging and purpose! We challenge you to participate in an activity that is meaningful to you today whether it be a walk outside, reading a book, or cooking your favorite meal.
