American Occupational Therapy Association

Brief Description of Your Organization's Activities:: 

The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) is the nationally recognized professional association of more than 35,000 occupational  therapists, occupational therapy assistants, and students of occupational therapy. AOTA advances the quality, availability, use, and support of occupational therapy through standard-setting, advocacy, education, and research on behalf of its members and the public.

Practitioners work with people experiencing health problems such as stroke, spinal cord injuries, cancer, congenital conditions, developmental  problems, and mental illness. Occupational therapy helps people regain, develop, and build skills that are essential for independent functioning, health, and well-being.

Therapy interventions occur in a wide range of settings including schools,  hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, home health, outpatient rehabilitation clinics, psychiatric facilities, and community health programs. Occupational therapy can prevent injury or the worsening of existing  conditions or disabilities and thereby promote independence in individuals who may otherwise require institutionalization or other long-term care. Because of this, occupational therapy can help keep health care costs down  while maximizing the quality of life for individuals, families, and caregivers.
