OT Month

April is Occupational Therapist Month

Occupational therapists are part of a vitally important profession that help people across their lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Their holistic and customized approach to evaluations, interventions, and outcomes help Veterans engage in social situations, assist in recovering from injuries to regain skills and offer the specialized support and services to Veterans that only occupational therapy can provide. VA is proud of our team of Occupational Therapy professionals who work hard everyday to enrich the lives of Veterans.
