State Supervision Requirements for Occupational Therapists and OT Assistants

Back to my blog home page: http://travelingotr.blogspot.com

The occupational therapy field in the United States has an amazing certification organization called the NBCOT - National Board for Certification in Occupational Therapy. I was on their website today because they are having a slogan contest, and I wanted to see if they had posted info on it there. While I was surfing their site, I came across some really great info I want to share with you. It will come in very handy if you have questions about supervision of OT assistants, especially in remote areas.

NBCOT has provided a one-stop reference to all the state practice acts regarding supervision, which is titled,

An Overview of State Regulatory Supervision Requirements for Occupational Therapy Assistants

It is available through the following link:


How helpful! Thank you, NBCOT!

PS - I copied today's  email about the slogan contest in case you did not receive it:
