Occupational therapists help a variety of professions, from construction workers to corporate jobs. However, OT is not limited to those in the workforce; it can benefit all types of individuals. OT helps children, students, stay-at-home parents, retirees, weekend warriors, and elite athletes achieve their goals and function at the highest level possible.
