Occupational Therapy Career

Occupational Therapists - Working conditions

Occupational therapists in hospitals and other health care and community settings usually work a 40-hour week.

Those in schools may participate in meetings and other activities during and after the school day. More than a quarter of occupational therapists work part time.

In large rehabilitation centers, therapists may work in spacious rooms equipped with machines, tools, and other devices generating noise.

The work can be tiring, because therapists are on their feet much of the time. Those providing home health care services may spend time driving from appointment to appointment.

Therapists also face hazards such as back strain from lifting and moving clients and equipment.

Therapists increasingly are taking on supervisory roles. Because of rising health care costs, third-party payers are beginning to encourage occupational therapist assistants and aides to take more hands-on responsibility. By having assistants and aides work more closely with clients under the guidance of a therapist, the cost of therapy should decline.

Many occupational therapists work with the following professionals:

  • Occupational Therapist Assistants
  • Occupational Therapist Aides
  • Occupational Therapist assistants
  • Physical Therapist
  • Physical Therapist Assistants and
  • Physical Therapist Aides.

Occupational therapists use specialized knowledge to help individuals perform daily living skills and achieve maximum independence. Other workers performing similar duties include audiologists, chiropractors, recreational therapists, rehabilitation counselors, respiratory therapists, and speech-language pathologists.
