Occupational Therapy Assisting

Occupational Therapy Assisting Careers

Occupational therapy assistants may work as in-home health aides, in an office setting or clinical or hospital setting. Occupational therapists work with mentally and physically handicapped patients to help them succeed in their day to day lives. They may work to improve coordination, cognitive function and other physical and mental skills to help their patients be able to function both at work and in their personal lives. Occupational therapy assistants help in therapy sessions and also prepare patients for sessions. They may also schedule appointments, file paperwork and perform other general office duties. These careers often require minimal education and few specialized skills. However, they can be an excellent opportunity to gain professional experience in preparation for an Occupational Therapy bachelor's or master's degree program.
