OGDENSBURG — April is Occupational Therapy Month, and Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center is joining in the national celebration to recognize its occupational therapists.

Occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants are part of a vitally important profession that helps people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities.

They can help a child with disabilities participate in school and social situations, assist a person recovering from injuries to regain skills or aid an older adult to stay as independent as possible.
