What is Occupational Therapy

Consumers

According to the American Occupational Therapy Association:  "Occupational therapy is a science-driven, evidence-based profession that enables people of all ages to live life to its fullest by helping them promote health and prevent—or live better with—illness, injury or disability. 

Practitioners must complete supervised clinical internships in a variety of health care settings, and pass a national examination. Most states also regulate occupational therapy practice."

Occupational therapists must be licensed to practice in New Jersey.
