     "Occupational therapy is a client-centred health profession concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life." -World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT)

    School occupational therapists are key contributors within the education team. We support a student’s ability to participate in desired daily school activities or “occupations.” We help children to fulfill their role as students by supporting their academic achievement and promoting positive behaviors necessary for learning. Because of our expertise in activity and environmental analysis, we are particularly skilled in facilitating student access to curricular and extracurricular activities. We also focus on the students’ strengths, and can design and implement programming to improve inclusion and accessibility. Additionally, we play a critical role in educating and collaborating with parents, educators, administrators and other staff members. -American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA)
