Int’l Occupational Therapy Day
An exhibition of photographs illustrating the unconventional methods and tools used for OT was displayed in the lobby of the hospital. Each photograph, taken by and from the standpoint of the occupational therapist during therapeutic intervention, depicts different aspects of function in babies and children: play, eating, drawing and other daily activities. They also underscored the leading approach applied at Schneider Children’s: Client Centered Approach.
