According the American Occupational Therapy Association (http://www.aota.org) occupational therapists (OT's) help people to live life to the fullest. OT's assist people who have disabling conditions to move, touch, think, perceive, engage, perform, interact and participate better whether preparing dinner at home, driving to work, organizing the office party, baby sitting for your grandchild or playing cards with your friends. Guided by a belief in the power of being physically, mentally, spiritually and socially active, OT's assist people who are at risk for medical/psychological problems to prevent injury or health conditions by leading healthy and productive lives.
Whether it's redesigning a play area for a child in a wheelchair, planning holiday shopping strategies for an adult with heart and breathing problems, or modifying job tasks so a returning veteran with a traumatic brain injury can return to work...OT's make a difference in people's lives. If you can see yourself being a health professional who makes a difference, then the Master of Science in Occupational Therapy Program at AIC can help you get there.
