Occupational therapy practitioners help people of all ages gain skills needed to take part in meaningful daily activities called occupations, to support participation in their environments, from dressing and feeding themselves, to work, school, play, leisure, and/or social participation.

This program is designed to prepare students to provide occupational therapy treatments and related tasks under the supervision of a Registered Occupational Therapist in a variety of delivery systems, including, but not limited to: acute care settings, long term care facilities, rehabilitation centers, school system, mental health agencies and institutions, home health care agencies, pediatric centers, and private practices. They may also be employed as activity coordinators.

The program requires five full-time semesters of study.  All OTA students must complete Level II Fieldwork within 18 months following completion of academic preparation.  All academic and fieldwork requirements must be completed before the student will be eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination.

(NBCOT). Successful completion of this exam is required to apply for licensure by the Ohio Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and Athletic Trainers Board.
