Occupational Therapists specialise in assessing a patient who may be ill, injured, or disabled, and helping them regain skills by providing therapy and support. They will also carry out workplace or home safety assessments, as well as progress reports, to ensure there are correct changes to their client’s lifestyles to help them adapt to their daily lives and activities.
Depending on the location of work and experience, a qualified occupational therapist can earn between $58,000 – $92,000 per year.
An occupational therapist’s hours are dependent on their contract, possibly including irregular hours, nights, and weekends.
Becoming an occupational therapist requires 3 years of training.
