Occupational Therapy Assistant Program
Occupational therapy uses everyday activities as the means to help people achieve independence. Under the supervision of registered occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants (OTA) help people of all ages to lead productive satisfying lives by providing client-centered therapy in a variety of settings. The OTA is instrumental in helping clients become more independent in self care, functional mobility, home management, participation in play/leisure/work activities, success with social participation, environmental modification, adaptive equipment design, splint fabrication and client/caregiver education.
