What is occupational therapy? I get asked this question all. the. time. And there was a time when I would just say, “it’s similar to physical therapy” and then segway the conversation to another topic. Occupational therapy is a beautiful career path that is difficult to explain for the mere reason that the role of an occupational therapist completely varies depending on what setting you’re working in and with what population you’re working with. Truthfully, I think occupational therapy can be whatever it is you want it to be.
