1 OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ASSISTANT PROGRAM ADMISSION GUIDELINES

2 OCCUPATIONAL THERAPY ASSISTANT Nature of Work: The fundamental purpose of occupational therapy is the development and maintenance of a person s capacity throughout life to perform those tasks and roles essential to productive living. As an Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) you will provide services to those impaired by physical illness, psychosocial disability, developmental deficits, and aging. Through occupational therapy intervention, individuals are returned to their maximum level of independence, mastering life skills that include: selfcare, daily living, leisure, and work. The occupational therapy assistant carries out a treatment plan under the guidance and supervision of an occupational therapist. The OTA provides a variety of treatment modalities to the patient such as: activities of daily living training, splinting, environmental modifications, safety training during activities of daily living maneuvers, wheelchair positioning and modifications, sensory integration, teaching life skills to patients with mental illness, job site analysis, energy conservation techniques, cognitive retraining and neuromuscular retraining techniques for individuals who have lost functional use of an extremity. Other duties include documenting patient progress and assisting with formulation of discharge planning. The OTA also maintains clinical equipment and supervises aides. Skills and Abilities: To pursue a career as an occupational therapy assistant, you must possess physical stamina, manual dexterity and be able to work with people of all ages, temperaments, and personalities. Good communication skills, self initiation, established organizational skills, ingenuity, imagination to adapt activities and treatment, and a caring personality are needed for effective patient care. All students must be able to fulfill certain technical functions. These functions are the essential requirements of the occupational therapy assistant program that students must master to successfully participate in the program and become employable in the field of occupational therapy. Technical functions for students in the Occupational Therapy Assistant program: a. All students must possess the manual dexterity, physical stamina, and visual capacity to perform all required technical procedures. b. Students must be able to communicate in an effectual manner. Students will be required to read and comprehend technical material, as well as write technical reports in a clear and concise manner. In addition, all students must be able to verbally communicate effectively with patients, co-workers, and other occupational therapy personnel. Each applicant needs to assess his/her own ability to meet the above technical functions. Accreditation: Lewis and Clark s OTA program is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Occupational Therapy Education (ACOTE) of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) located at 4720 Montgomery Lane, Bethesda, MD AOTA s phone number is (301) 652- AOTA. Graduates will be able to sit for the national certification examination for the Occupational Therapy Assistant administered by the National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy (NBCOT). After successful completion of this exam, the individual will be a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA). Illinois and Missouri require candidates to be licensed in order to practice once you have passed the NBCOT examination. Missouri and Illinois Department of Professional Regulations, as well as NBCOT, may refuse licensure to applicants who may jeopardize the well-being of their citizens. Anyone have a felony conviction should contact NBCOT and/or the Illinois Department for financials and professional Regulation for advisement.
