National OT Month!!
By: Cheryl “Chae” Dimapasoc Canon, PT, DPT; OptimisPT Director of Implementation and Compliance
As an occupational therapist (OT) or occupational therapy assistant (COTA), you are part of a vitally important profession that helps people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. We are proud that hundreds of occupational therapists are part of the OptimisPT family.
Occupational Therapy celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2017. The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) created a wonderful page that looks back at the 100 years and showcases videos, testimonials and stories of amazing moments in the profession. AOTA Centennial webpage
The AOTA also has a great webpage to encourage patients and clients to visit to learn more about how occupational therapy changes lives. OT Changes Lives. These are great ways to promote the profession during National OT Month and beyond.
Are you an OT that has a story to tell? We would love to feature you on our social media sites! Please send a blog or story with your name and place of employment and we’ll gladly help promote the profession and the great work you do. We encourage you to post on your company website and use #OTmonth and tag us @optimispt or #optimispt.
