Occupational Therapy Month
Occupational Therapy Month, observed in April, is a time to increase awareness of occupational therapy, promote the need for intervention after an injury or illness, and spur advocacy on behalf of those suffering with the emotion, financial and physical burden of illness and injury.
Occupational therapy helps people across their lifespan 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.
