I love OT 2

Occupational therapy helps to solve the problems that interfere with a person’s ability to do the things that are important to them – everyday things like:

  • self-care (e.g., getting dressed, eating, mobility)
  • being productive (e.g., working, going to school, volunteering)
  • leisure activities (e.g., sports, hobbies, socialization)

Occupational therapists (OTs) use a client-centered approach.

OTs use a holistic approach that focuses on a person’s functioning in all areas.

OTs help people overcome barriers so that they can lead more productive and satisfying lives.

OTs enable people to engage in activities that are meaningful to them.

OTs are:

  • university educated professionals
  • 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
  • registered with their provincial regulator thereby enabling them to practice legally in Canada
