Occupational Therapist Appreciation!

Occupational Therapist Appreciation Day is coming up on 4/1! Additionally, Occupational Therapy Month is celebrated annually in April.

APTS has a team of several therapists, including OT’s who provide specialized treatment to our students. This vital profession makes a meaningful difference in the lives of our students.

So…. what is OT?!

In short, Occupational therapy enables people to participate in healthy living through the use of occupation and meaningful activities with specific goals.

These activities are aimed at helping individuals prevent, lessen, or adapt to disabilities. The activities may be as basic as bathing or dressing, or as complex as operating a computer with modified control switches.

Occupational Therapists work directly with patients, helping them master skills for achieving an independent, productive, and satisfying life.

We appreciate the passionate approach our OT’s take to providing students with a better quality of life.

Thank you, and Happy Occupational Appreciation Day and Month!
