HAND IN HAND
What makes you want to become an occupational therapist?
I did not want my job to be merely a job, I wanted to spend my time doing work that is meaningful and fulfilling. As an Occupational Therapist, that is precisely what we do! Supporting our clients to participate in their daily life activities, facilitating the development of skills through a fun and enjoyable way. We try and take away the tedium of learning, injecting fun and encouraging self-exploration through play.
In your years in occupational therapy, what have you learnt most?
Through the years of work as an Occupational Therapist, I have learnt that family support is vital in our client’s growth and progress. We only see our children for limited hours every week but their caregivers are with them every day. You are the ones who can support and make the most difference in their lives!
