Project Description

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a diverse field of practice that services individuals of all ages, in various settings, with numerous physical, mental, and/or development disabilities. An Occupational Therapist’s (OT) art is to rehabilitate such individuals to independently return to their occupations of everyday life.
