Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy

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 therapists and occupational therapy assistants licensed by the Texas Board of Occupational Therapy Examiners (TBOTE) can provide occupational therapy in Texas. Approximately 9,650 occupational therapists and 5,365 occupational therapy assistants are currently licensed by TBOTE.
