I must apologize for being extraordinarily dumb or lazy, but I am just starting exploring this OT job option and am still struggling to understand the scope of work. ok, ADL.. but how exactly? Let's say, a woman in her 30s is injured in a car accident, her limbs are there but she lost the ability to control them. Will it be an OT's job to teach her walk again? At first I thought OT is about treating illnesses (including mental) THROUGH occupations as I truly believe in therapeutic powers of art and fitness)) but I discovered it is rather teaching older people how to button up with an unruly hand... Is it??!!
