As many of you know I am intrested in becoming an Occupational Therapist, OT. This program is allowing me experience abroad in this sort of setting. I am greatful for this experience and hopefully I will have even more oppurtunities to work abroad once I become an OT. Here is a little about what I will be doing. As a volunteer in the Occupational Therapy Program, I will be providing your skills, patience and understanding of intellectual diversity in an international setting. OT placements include a school for disabled children as well as other projects. Volunteers will work with program coordinators to arrange and run workshops and classes in the following areas: knitting, cooking, horticulture, arts and music. They will also provide general help to the individuals attending the school such as assisting during class time as well as helping with daily physical therapy activities. Volunteers may also help with seminars aimed at the families of the autistic children to help them better understand and cope with their condition. Thank you for your support!
