Quick Reference Guide
The 5th edition of Quick Reference Dictionary for Occupational Therapy (SLACK, Inc.) edited by Karen Jacobs and Laela Jacobs is coming! For this latest edition, I have been asked to develop an appendix to help answer the question, “What is Occupational Therapy?” Every student and practitioner has been asked this very question countless times. This appendix provides both professional and practitioner/student definitions of the profession and are designed to serve as a tool for readers to assist those not familiar with occupational therapy understand what we do!
I am in the process of collecting one-sentence definitions of occupational therapy and you can help! This is your opportunity to share your knowledge about the profession and if your definition is selected, be cited as author for that definition in the newest Quick Reference Dictionary!
Please forward your responses to the following email address smcneil AT bu.edu no later than Friday July 25th at 6pm!
Thank you in advance!
