51st Annual National Conference of AIOTA – ‘OTICON-14’ from 7th to 9th February 2014

Theme of conference “Living Life to the fullest- An Occupational Therapy Perspective”
“Occupational Therapy: Living Life to Its Fullest” embraces those variations and crystallizes in a few words what the profession stands for, and the positive impact practitioners have on the lives of those they serve. Occupational therapy enables people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, prevent—or live better with—injury, illness, or disability. It is a practice deeply rooted in science and an evidence-based, meaning that the plan designed for each individual is supported by data, experience, and “best practices” that have been developed and proven over time. It is occupational therapy’s purpose to get beyond problems of their clients to a solution that assure living life to its fullest. The goal is to maximize potential. Through therapeutic approaches, occupational therapy helps individuals design their lives, develop needed skills, adjust their environments (e.g., home, school, or work) and build health-promoting habits and routines that will allow them to thrive. “Living Life to Its Fullest” is what occupational therapy is truly all about.
