No, I don’t help you find a job, and no, I’m not the same as a Physiotherapist.
Occupations are the activities people do that occupy their time. OTs enable participation in these occupations.
Some OTs work with Seniors after they’ve fallen, broken a hip and help them remain living at home. They help modify doorways, recommend ramps, and obtain equipment like chair lifts, bath chairs, grab bars and more!
OTs work in hospitals, clinics and schools, in people’s homes, workplaces and in the community. OTs work in physical and mental health capacities and OTs work with people ages zero to 100+.
The main occupation of childhood is play! Playing is how children learn about their world and all that is in it. Pediatric OTs PLAY! OTs evaluate a child’s skills for playing, school performance, and daily self-care activities and compare the skills with same age peers. Pediatric OT is all about play and is how I engage my clients, learn about them, and how treatment occurs.
