Why did you decide to study occupational therapy?

I decided to study occupational therapy because it addresses participation at the client and environmental level. Occupational therapy allows individuals to develop strategies and techniques to participate in a variety of activities from dressing to leisure. Participation in any meaningful activity is very empowering, and I love being a part of developing that plan for all clients.
