About This Year's Theme: “Occupational Therapy: Meaningful Connections Through Meaningful Occupations”

Helping individuals participate in their meaningful occupations is the core of occupational therapy. In the world today, it can be difficult to make meaningful connections that have a great impact on our lives, particularly in this season of adversity and isolation. Occupational therapy can help individuals make connections through their occupations that will foster growth in all aspects of life. This year’s Conference & Student Track theme, “Occupational Therapy: Meaningful Connections Through Meaningful Occupations” will promote meaningful connections as we learn and grow together to help others with their meaningful occupations.
