What I feel are the most important qualities in an occupational therapist
Patience, adaptability, and strong analytical skills are vital to being a good OT. We need to have the ability to take a multi-system and family-centered approach to treatment. In pediatrics especially, we prioritize play as the vehicle to skill building to ultimately improve function.
