Understanding the Impact of Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapists help people, such as those with disabilities, live independently.
Occupational Therapists evaluate and treat people who have injuries, illnesses, or disabilities.
They help clients meet goals to develop, recover, improve, and maintain skills needed for daily living and working. For example, activities to build fine motor skills might include picking things up with implements. Exercises to improve gross motor skills might jumping up to a platform or running an obstacle course. For someone who struggles with motor planning, therapists might work on daily routines like getting dressed.

A successful Occupational Therapy Assistant is committed to knowledgeable and ethical patient care. Professionalism in classroom and clinical settings is a must. Good communication skills with medical providers, patients and their families are also vital to success in this career. If you are compassionate, motivated, and disciplined, this is the program for you.
