As many occupational therapists will tell you, the public is often unaware of an occupational therapist’s role in rehabilitation. When referring to the field of occupational therapy, “occupations” can be broadly defined as things you want or need to do to fulfill life roles and find meaning. Occupations include work, play, education, rest, activities of daily living, instrumental activities of daily living, and social participation.

Although occupational therapists and Physical Therapists often work closely together, they are not the same. As one therapist put it, “A physical therapist will teach you how to walk. An occupational therapist will help you put on your dancing shoes and dance the night away!”

UH Samaritan's Alicia Gottfried (MOT, OTR/L) and Keeley Shaw (COTA) would love to answer all your questions about Occupational Therapy.  Be sure to ask Alecia and Keeley "Is Occupational Therapy right for me?"
