People who need help performing occupations like dressing, driving, gardening, playing with toys, going to school, working or participating in social situations with others require an occupational therapist. Occupational therapy helps individuals engage in activities that are meaningful (occupations) and maintain their well-being despite the challenges of health, personal or environmental conditions. The entry-level master's degree in occupational therapy prepares you well for a highly rewarding career as an occupational therapist. More about occupational therapy
