      I would like to check with my OT prior to sharing her information. May I ask the nature of your inquiry?

    By OT, do you mean Occupational Therapy?

      Hi Jake,

      I use OT to refer to my occupational therapist in my post, “I’ve been going to occupational therapy for close to one year now. I was referred to an occupational therapist (OT) by a psychiatrist,” but I’m sure many use it to refer to occupational therapy too.

      Thank you for reading!

      Best,
      Jenna
