April is Occupational Therapy Month. Many activities occupy our days — we get up and get dressed, eat breakfast, brush our teeth, dial the phone, write a check, drive the car, fold the laundry, and shop for groceries. But how can we do these things in the face of major health problems? That’s where occupational therapy helps, with special skills and tools to get you back to doing things for yourself. To learn more, visit the Consumer section of the American Occupational Therapy Association’s Web site at www.aota.org.
