I have an assignment that I need to bring in job as about Occupational Therapy. I need to be able to find a job that it's title is not specifically Occupational Therapy. In other words... I need to know, what can an Occupational Therapist/assistant do other than working as an OT/OTA?
Also, how long do you have to go to be just an occupational therapist assistant.........and anyone answering, do you have this job and do u like it?
My goal is to become an occupational therapist assistant by getting my associate degree, but I would like to start working in this field now while I attend school. Also, if you work in this field, what are some pros and cons? Thanks.
Is Pre-Occupational Therapy designed for those wanting to become an occupational therapist assistant, for only those wanting to pursue master's or doctorate degree, or for both?
I am in the process of trying to find out what to return to college for. Is there anyone that may have experience as a Occupational Therapist Assistant. Do you have to obtain a Associate degree to work in this field. Also, if you have experience, do you enjoy the work and can you make a living wage with this background.
I am currently majoring in occupational therapist assistance. I was wondering if I would be able to work with kids or in public schools, or is that more of just an OT's job? In high school, I was in peer tutoring where we helped with the special needs kids, and I absolutely LOVED it! I enjoyed seeing their faces light up once they learned something new! Thanks. :)
I have been looking into occupational therapist assistant which is a 2 year associate degree. would I be better off to do that or go on for a 4 year bachelor degree? Is the curriculum very difficult? (ive been out of school for some time) also is it difficult finding a job after you graduate?
I have been experiencing problems in finding a job as an occupational therapist mainly due to lack of work experience. Just wondering if I can work as therapy assistant to make my resume look better and find work as occupational therapist in the future?
I am willing to work as assistant. just need to know whether I am eligible to work as assistant?
According to this government site, it seems quite promising:
Now, I am asking those of you who are actually in the field or close to it. Are the jobs plentiful? Hopefully, this is not a case of high pay, few job opportunities.
Also, what about occupational therapy assistants? How does the job market look for them?
I want to be an Occupational Therapist Assistant, but I don't know anyone in Fresno who can give me good advice for colleges and programs. I really need a community college with a good OTAP (Occupational Therapist Assistant Program) and offers a good OTA education for me. Any advice will help, thank you.
So far I have been told these:
RN (Registered Nurse)
Computer Specialist or IT or Computer Support Specialist
Occupational therapist assistants
anything. I don't know what I want to do with my life, but i need to decide.
When i look up the average salary of occupational therapy assistants online, it says you can earn up to 110,000/ yr. Does that apply to people with associates degree? or do i have to have a special certification? if yes, how long does that take?
I would love a career that involves helping people. Two potential options I found are a Physical Therapist Assistant and Occupational Therapy Assistant. I was wondering what kind of schooling is required in the Netherlands for that profession. In the U.S. I know you need at least a Associate Degree in that field and you must be certified.
I'm studying Kinesiology and now it's time to decide on a specific area I'd do. So I've been thinking along the line of personal trainer to exercise physiologist...and then i thought of occupational therapist. I thought of this because it seems like one of those noble and rewarding careers...and not a desk job either. While being a strength coach might be more exciting than working with disabled people, the later would be deem more benificial for the world.
Most important...i'm now seeing that OT is becoming like PT and they both are having students get a Master's Degree (is this mandatory?). And that is not up my alley at all. I want to see what my opportunities are with a Bachelor's degree only. I suppose i could be an "assistant" whatever that means.
Do i have to be in a "OT program"..like kinesiology isn't enough?
So do to a mistake during my mothers pregnancy by doctors, I was born without my left hand. BUT I DO HAVE MY RIGHT HAND FULLY! I have partial growth on my left hand meaning you can see where my thumb and my other fingers would have been on my hand. I am able to move my left hand and I function without it very well. I do NOT need any extra help or helping devices nor a prosthetic hand. I was NEVER put in special education and I do NOT receive any disability checks or help from any form of government nor any type of agency. I am SIMPLY MISSING MY FIVE FINGERS ON MY LEFT HAND.
I've been living this way for 18 years. I want to help people who are like me and I want to show them that I can understand their daily challenges because I live it just like they do AND I DIDNT HAVE A PHYSICAL THERAPIST/OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST TO TEACH ME HOW TO LIVE.
So can I become licensed as a physical therapist or occupational therapist with that minor disability? Or even a physical therapist assistant or occupational therapist. I can maneuver and lift as needed. i can stand for long periods of time.
I am looking for a new career. I am looking at either Pharmacy Tech, Licensed Practical Nurse, or Occupational Therapist Assistant. Which of these is the best? I have experience with people with disabilities by working at a group home, adult day care and a psych hospital. I would like to work with people with disabilities in the future just as a more qualified professional.
Which of these careers would be a good career for me to get into?
How old do you have to be and what is a typical day like? What do you do and do you like your jobs? Being an aide, do it make you want to go all the way and become either a physical therapist or occupational therapist? I need some advice because I am thinking about getting a job as an occupational therapy aide or physical therapy aide.
I have a liberal arts bachelor's degree and the only thing it has done for me is land me a job in a home health office. The job sucks but the pay is ok. I really do want to go back to school. I am sick of being in a cubicle everyday. I always loved social sciences. But now that I have grown to love the geriatric population, I would love to work with them as well. I am debating between a middle school social studies MAT degree or becoming a PTA or OTA. Any suggestions would be very appreciated.
I'm interested in this field but I don't know if theres a demand for males.
I want to become a occupational therapist assistant I'm looking forward to my Asscoates degree and I wanted to know
Can OTA's work in home care and nursing homes
