Join us in celebrating Occupational Therapy: October is OT Month!  

Every October, OT Works! takes pride in celebrating our exceptional team of Occupational Therapists and the impact they have on the lives of our clients. 

Unity Through Community 

OT month is celebrated both locally and internationally, with October 27th being recognized as World Occupational Therapy Day. This year, we are inspired by the theme proposed by The World Federation of Occupational Therapists (WFOT): “Unity Through Community.” 

Occupational Therapists play a crucial role in facilitating their clients’ recovery and well-being by fostering collaboration with other healthcare professionals. This collaborative approach ensures that our clients receive the holistic and comprehensive care they deserve.  

To have real impact, and truly make a difference in our clients’ lives, we must work together. Every discipline brings different tools and perspectives, and when we coordinate our efforts and focus on the client’s goals, meaningful change happens.”
