OT Week Events

During OT Week we celebrate occupational therapy and promote the many ways occupational therapists help all people to reach their potential. In  2020 our theme is: Resilience: Supporting our communities to rebuild, recover, and reengage. This year the event not only shines a spotlight on the value of occupational therapy in our communities, but also serves as a call to arms to support those hardest hit. 

Are you holding a local OT Week event? Be sure to email us with your event details to be included in the event listing below: info@otaus.com.au. And after your local event, send your photos (with captions) to info@otaus.com.au to be included in our OT Week 2020 wrap-up article.
