The "Gas Fuel Gauge"
What’s on the inside of every person waiting to be used? Potential! We are fuel tanks waiting to be filled and run on full throttle.
Occupational therapy can have that effect on people. It helps them feel the power and possibility of being independent, functioning in daily life, and achieving their goals.
Occupational therapy practitioners look at the whole person and determine what “fuel” each individual wants and needs so their lives are complete and their potential is realized. To do this, occupational therapy uses science and evidence-based best practices and considers the whole picture—their physical, environmental, psychological, and social needs—to keep them running on “full.”
We encourage you to adopt “Living Life To Its Fullest” as a simple, yet powerful message. Use it daily to help communicate the essence of our profession to clients, consumers, fellow health care professionals, and everyone who can benefit from all that occupational therapy has to offer.
