Occupational therapists have their world day. In fact, it seems that this day is of Anglo-Saxon origin where the "World Occupational Therapy Day" has been celebrated for a number of years.
The goal of occupational therapy is to maintain, restore and enable human activities in an autonomous and effective manner. It makes it possible to reduce situations of disability by taking into account the environment of people and their habits. The occupational therapist is the intermediary between the adaptation needs of the person and the demands of daily life in society.
