Occupational Therapy (OT) addresses how we decide, navigate, manage, and sustain the daily occurrences in life. Those occurrences can be brushing your teeth, drinking a cup of coffee, driving to work, baking chocolate chip cookies, reading a book, riding the bus, meandering around a museum, or holding hands with a loved one. When a person encounters barriers  in participating in those daily occurrences, an occupational therapist examines the why, when, where, what, with whom, and how a person occupies time, space, and activities to engage a meaningful life. At GW OT, you will learn how to remove the barriers to independence and empower people and communities to live productive and meaningful lives.
