Occupational Therapists (OTs) help their clients live life to the fullest by improving their ability to participate in activities of daily living, leisure and school/work. OTs are are enthusiastic and caring. They get excited about helping clients be able to do the little things that are important to them every day, such as being able to tie their shoes, make themselves dinner, play a game with a friend or keep homework organized so that it can be turned in on time. Whatever skills for the job of living are needed, OTs work towards higher achievement.
