Occupational Therapy, OT, COTA, Allied HealthIf you want an incredibly rewarding career, don't want to sit at a desk from 9 to 5, and want to help your patients improve their lives, Occupational Therapy may be for you.

Occupational Therapists work in a variety of settings with a variety of patients who all have various needs. They help patients participate in their lives fully.

  • You might help a patient you teach how to tie their shoes or learn how to write.
  • You might have one patient with a disability and help them with getting involved in school and social activities.
  • You might work with kids with disabilities and help work on everyday life activities that can make them more independent.
  • You could work with an adult who suffered from a stroke and help them regain some of their motor skills.
  • You can make therapy fun! You might take kids with disabilities to go horseback riding or get to help an elderly person walk in their own home!
Therapy can be fun, challenging, and incredibly rewarding. Occupational Therapy lets you help people using science-based techniques. It is an incredibly flexible career. The qualifications are recognized in several countries allowing you to possibly travel or live abroad if you want to.
