Hello there! I’d like to show you all what it is that Occupational Therapists (OTs) do on a daily basis.
Some of you might be wondering what an OT is and what we do. Most people are familiar with Physical Therapists or Speech Therapists in hospitals or clinics. I’m not gonna bore you with the specifics, so I’ll just describe what we do in the least technical way I can.
I think the Chinese proverb “Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to how to fish and you feed him for a lifetime” pretty much sums up what we do.

Activities that we take for granted such as dressing, eating, or even going to the toilet is a big challenge for handicapped people – and we as OTs are here to help.
I work mainly with geriatrics and pediatrics in my workplace. Whether it’s teaching my adult patient to relearn how to wear his shirt or write his name to teaching my cute pediatric patients to make friends or perform better at school, I’m very glad to have made a difference in their lives.
