  1. I am new to the concept of occupational science. Although I have learned many of the concepts, I do not recall learning the term occupational science when in school. But I wonder why the need for a separation from OT occurred. It seems that a responsible OT could not practice without these concepts. I don’t disagree with the need for growth of knowledge about OT and occupation, but by dividing into two fields, it creates a chasm between the science and the practice of occupation. It also separates occupation from the therapy, potentially weakening our “owning” occupation as the purview of OT.
    Still open to learning more about OS.
