International day of Occupational Therapy on 27 October, 2009.

Title: International day of Occupational Therapy on 27 October, 2009.
Occupational therapy is a profession, concerned with promoting health and well being through occupation. The primary goal of occupational therapy is to enable people to participate in the activities of everyday life. Occupational Therapists achieve this outcome by enabling people to do things that will enhance their ability to participate or by modifying the environment to better support and participation.
Occupational Therapists have a broad education that equips them with skills and knowledge to work collaboratively with individuals or groups of people who have an impairment of body structure or function due to a health condition, and who experience barriers to participation. Occupational therapists believe that participation can be supported or restricted by physical, social, attitudinal and legislative environments. Therefore, occupational therapy practice may be directed to changing aspects of the environment to enhance participation.
Occupational therapy is practiced in a wide range of settings, including hospitals, health centers, homes, workplaces, schools, reform institutions and housing for seniors. Clients are actively involved in the therapeutic process, and outcomes of occupational therapy are diverse, client-driven and measured in terms of participation or satisfaction derived from participation. In the occasion of international occupational therapy day on 27 October 2009 I wish you all healthy and meaning full life. For more information a person can visit,,
