Sydney’s Answer

Pediatric Occupational Therapists! While we’re increasingly getting our name out there, often times people are unsure of what we do. They see “occupational” and assume it has something to do with jobs, which then becomes confusing when you add “pediatric” to the beginning of it. In reality, we deal with all things occupying someone’s time - even children! We have the ability to serve all people, from birth to the end of someone’s life. Pediatric OTs can serve many children who experience developmental delays or conditions that may cause those delays. We work with kiddos who have Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, ADHD, feeding concerns/disorders, motor delays/disorders, issues with emotional regulation, sensory seeking/avoiding behaviors, and SO MUCH MORE! We help both the child and caregiver(s) during the process to support the family dynamic and help their children reach milestones, become independent, and have an overall better quality of life.

T.J.’s Answer

Hello Alina!

I thought about this question too. Commonly, people think of teachers as the main career to help children.

Actually, there are 𝘈 𝘓𝘰𝘵 of jobs that are not only fulfilling, they provide a way to either help or have fun with younger groups of people/children.
Here's a list!

Directly in School / Education:
- School Administrators
- School Secretaries
- Guidance Counselors
- Academic Advisors
- School Librarians, or Children's Librarians
- Speech Therapists or Pathologists

Indirectly Related or Unrelated to Education:
- Museum Educator
- Youth Club/Program Organizer
- After School Program Organizer

Lastly, here's some Special Jobs!
✶ Teachers in non-school settings
(> Home School instructors (based on contracts with families) | Daycare instructors | Youth Detention Center instructors | Hospital instructors, etc!
✶ Toy designers!

Take a look at all of these options. You might find something enjoyable!

Sending you motivation as you explore these careers :)
