The Occupational Therapy Licensing Board, created in 1977, regulates occupational therapy practice to assure that only qualified persons provide occupational therapy services. The Board sets the standards of practice and examines applicants for licensure, issues licenses to qualified applicants, investigates complaints and takes appropriate disciplinary action when violations are found to have occurred.
Occupational Therapy is the analysis and use of purposeful activity with individuals who are limited by physical injury or illness, developmental or learning disability, psycho-social dysfunctions or the aging process in order to maximize independence, prevent disability and maintain health.
