The practice of occupational therapy means the therapeutic use of everyday life activities (occupations) with individuals or groups for the purpose of participation in roles and situations in home, school, workplace, community and other settings.
Occupational therapy services are provided to those who have or are at risk for developing an illness, injury, disease, disorder, condition, impairment, disability, activity limitation, or participation restriction.
Occupational therapy addresses the physical, cognitive, psychosocial, sensory, and other aspects of performance in a variety of contexts to support engagement in everyday life activities that affect health, wellbeing, and quality of life.
Only Occupational Therapy Practitioners licensed by Texas Board of Occupational Therapy Examiners can provide occupational therapy in Texas.
TBOTE licenses over 8,165 occupational therapists and over 3,850 occupational therapy assistants for over 12,000 OT Practitioners.
