CELEBRATING OT MONTH WITH FUN ADAPTIVE EQUIPMENT

HAPPY OT MONTH!! Every April, we celebrate Occupational Therapy Month to honor our vital profession and the meaningful differences it makes in the lives of our clients.

 OTs can assist patients with a variety of diagnoses including traumatic brain injury, concussions, stroke, cerebral palsy, burns, fractures, spinal cord injury, orthopedic impairments, oculomotor deficits, autism spectrum disorder, sensory processing disorders, developmental delays and more! Learn more about WESTARM’s Occupational Therapy program here.
