Occupational therapy enables people of all ages live life to its fullest by helping them promote health, preventâ€”or live better withâ€”injury, illness, or disability. It is a practice deeply rooted in science and is evidence-based, meaning that the plan designed for each individual is supported by data, experience, and â€œbest practicesâ€ that have been developed and proven over time.

The 2009 OT Month theme is autism. The American Occupational Therapy Association provides some useful resources on autism at their site PromoteOT.org
