Occupational Therapy Assistants (OTAs)

OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ASSISTANTS (OTAs) work under the direction of occupational therapists in treating patients with injuries, illnesses or disabilities through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. They collaborate with occupational therapists to develop a treatment plan for each patient and carry out the plan, so patients recover and improve the skills needed for daily living and working. Many OTAs work in occupational therapist offices and in hospitals. The educational requirement to become an OTA is an associates degree.
