I would like to research more about Autism because more and more children are being diagnosed with it each year and the numbers are increasing rapidly.
Nursing care facilities
I chose this career because I love being around kids, and would like to help children be able to learn how to interact with others and be confident in what they can do. During Junior rotations I didn't have a chance to shadow an occupational therapist, but my friend's aunt works at a school and after her telling me more about what she does, I became more interested in this career.
I see myself as a successful person in this career. I wouldn't have my own business, but I would work in a group with others to help change the lives of children. I want to be able to help children be independent and to be able to do as much as all the other kids around them could do.

Pediatric occupational therapists work with infants and children who have trouble with movement and coordination. Their patients might be seeing them for neurological complaints, orthopedic injuries, spinal cord damage, muscular dystrophy or other motor disorders. An occupational therapist helps children develop their interaction and communication skills and educate them in self care abilites. Since many of them are too young to understand verbal instructions the therapists use games as their therapy.
