Students enrolled in this program are prepared for entry-level positions to assist in providing occupational therapy services under the supervision of a registered occupational therapist in a variety of facilities. Certified occupational therapy assistants are in high demand and are educated to assist in the prevention of further disability and the restoration of function in persons with developmental, physical or emotional disabilities, enabling patients to become as independent as possible within their own environment. Fieldwork experiences in a wide variety of health care and school-based facilities are included.
Graduates are eligible to take the National Certification Examination for the Occupational Therapy Assistant administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy.
