Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants

Certified Occupational Therapist Assistants help people develop and regain the necessary skills to have a meaningful and rewarding life. “Occupation” does not mean only employment, rather it may encompass anything that occupies your time. For a child or adolescent this could be playing, learning and socializing with friends. For adults it could be balancing a checkbook, having a job or getting dressed. When events in your life prevent you from completing your desired “occupations” you may benefit from participation in occupational therapy services.
