Occupational Therapy Month honors the important role that occupational therapists (OTs) play in helping people overcome physical, mental, and emotional challenges. OTs work with individuals of all ages to improve their ability to perform daily activities, enhance their independence, and achieve their goals. We’re celebrating the month through creative and engaging activities that can be used as therapeutic tools designed to promote hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and cognitive function, making them a great activity for people of all ages.
