April is National Occupational Therapy Month

Since 1980, the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) has celebrated National Occupational Therapy Month and the 213,000 occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, and students who work nationwide to create fuller lives for clients and their families.

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. These services may include:

  • Offering seniors who are recovering from a stroke, ways to resume independence
  • Helping seniors recovering from injury to regain skills necessary to return home
  • Providing support for seniors experiencing physical and cognitive changes
