let's parti!

15th January 2021

We've Launched!

 

Welcome to the Parti!

Introduction 

Occupational Therapists believe that everyone deserves to live their lives the way they want. We collaborate with individuals at different phases of their lives to understand their goals, identify their capabilities and equip them with skills and resources to participate. It could be as ordinary as supporting teenagers with anxiety symptoms to cope with different stressors in school; or as complicated as training a lady with spinal cord injury to use speech-to-text technology and other assistive technologies to draft emails. 

 

Some participation goals can only be actualized by concerted efforts from various stakeholders. Many elderly envisioned spending their later years in their own homes and neighbourhoods. To support ageing-in-place, Occupational Therapists worked with the Housing Development Board and its contractors to roll out home modifications across Singapore to build elderly-friendly houses. To enable people with varying mobility status to access different spaces, Occupational Therapists were involved in the review of Code of Accessibility in 2017 with Building Construction Authority, Singapore. 

 

Alongside differently-abled individuals and community partners, Occupational Therapists in Singapore have been promoting participation in a myriad of ways. 

Let's Parti - OT day 2021

This OT Day, we hope to gather different stories of participation and the significance it brought to different people’s lives. Through such participation stories, we could celebrate the successes of the profession so as to motivate the Occupational Therapists to continue their work, to inspire more individuals with disabilities to envision a fully participative life and for other healthcare professionals and members of the public to start conversing about what participation looks like in Singapore and it could and should be.

Miss V

Miss V had a lack of exposure in travelling to school by herself, as her mother has always been accompanying her to and from school. With a motorized scooter now and a new goal to cook for her mum, what would her participation look like?
