National Occupational Therapy Month!

SLIERS would like to reccognize our wonderful Occupational Therapists!  April is National Occupational Therapy Month, and all of the hard working OTs deserve to be recognized!  If you are not a SLIERSian, or have not be an Occupational Therapy patient, you may not know what OT is.  Here is a general definition:

” Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps individuals achieve independence in all facets of their lives. Occupational therapy assists people in developing the “skills for the job of living” necessary for independent and satisfying lives. ”

SLIERS OTs help treat over a thousend patients each year.  Their patients range from small children who are learning skills for living for the first time to adults regaining the skills they need to enjoy life. 

Remember to give every OT you see some EXTRA SLIERS Love this April!
