Top 10 reasons to LOVE Occupational Therapy (OT)




April is Occupational Therapy Month!  With 35 years as an Occupational Therapist, I would do it all over again in a heartbeat! OT is inherent to who I am.  There are ups and downs.  It is not for everyone.  Here are the reasons I LOVE Occupational Therapy (OT).  (In no particular order)


  1. OT addresses the whole individual! OT is holistic!

  2. OT provides care to individuals throughout the life span from birth to older adults. We can work with all ages and stages of people!

  3. OT is a serving profession in helping others and enhancing their quality of life.

  4. OT is imaginative and creative. No day is the same!

  5. OT can provide education to others about health and wellness.

  6. OT can learn from their clients. Your life becomes full and rewarding because of their stories and influence.

  7. OT addresses various physical, developmental, and psychosocial challenges in many settings.

  8. OT is a problem-solving profession.

  9. As an OT, there is flexibility to work full-time, part-time, hourly, nights, online, in person, or whatever fits your lifestyle.

  10. OT has the friendliest, kindest, and most encouraging colleagues ever!
