What you'll learn

You get booked to interpret within an Occupational Therapy (OT) session. What is expected of you? What are the challenges? What is OT?

OT sessions can be fun, practical and interesting sessions to be a part of. However, as a member of the Multi-Disciplinary Team, an interpreter needs to understand the rationale behind the profession and what the therapist will expect from you.

This webinar will take you through what Occupational Therapy actually is, the different sessions you may be asked to interpret, the possible expected aims of the session and the challenges as an interpreter you may experience.

I will also discuss how to prepare for an OT session and how to overcome its challenges.
