Dr. Mary Reilly once said something to the effect that if occupational therapy did not exist, someone would need to invent it. Fortunately, 100 years ago, ‘someone did’. Facilitating growth and development, the creation of new habit patterns, the rehabilitation of skills and abilities, the identification and implementation of scarifying lifestyles, the study of occupations and the effect of occupational therapy on the human body, mind and spirit are but some of the ways in which occupational therapists and occupation scientists have contributed to the proof of occupational therapy and enriched the legacy.
