October 27th is World Occupational Therapy Day! In honor of this great day, I just want to say a few words about my wonderful profession. First of all, I can truly say that I absolutely LOVE my job! Every day I go to work looking forward to helping children be the best that they can be. Whether I'm working with a student on handwriting, addressing sensory processing issues, or helping a child work on organizational skills, I always love the challenge and variety of being an occupational therapist.
Working in the school setting can be challenging at times. The resources and space is often limited and the paperwork is absolutely overwhelming! However, the kids make it all worthwhile. So for anyone trying to decide on a profession, I would highly recommend checking into O.T. There are a variety of different settings in which you can work, including schools, hospitals, nursing homes and rehabilitation centers. If you have any questions, feel free to message me and I'll answer you as best I can. For more information about World Occupational Therapy Day, click here!
