Nobody really knows what an occupational therapist does, even the therapists themselves are not altogether clear.

It may involve prescribing over toilet aids to old people, cajoling unco-ordinated children into completing sensory-motor activities, fighting off physical therapists who also claim to treat upper limb injuries and dealing with cranky night-shift nurses who are jealous they did not choose an alllied health profession.

Among the most over-worked and beleaguered of the helping professions, occupational therapists tend to get stuck dealing with the problems that even the social workers can't solve.
