The History of Occupational Therapy

As part of our class on Wednesday, June 12, we will work in small groups to create posts about our founders, specific eras within our history, our governing organizations, and today’s leaders. In addition to lecture, these posts will allow us to take a closer look at the roots of occupational therapy and the vision our founders established over 100 years ago.


Welcome to our class blog for Occupational Therapy Foundations and Theory. Through our individual and group posts, we will explore the history of occupational therapy, our founders, and the progression of our profession from 1917 to 2019 and beyond.
