    Occupational Therapist Assistant (OTAPTA)


    by centennialcollege

    Occupational Therapists (OT) and Physiotherapists (PT) work collaboratively to maintain, restore and improve movement and daily functioning in clients across the lifespan. Under the guidance of an OT and/or PT, Occupational Therapist Assistants and Physiotherapist Assistants (OTA/PTA) are expected to deliver safe and competent care to clients experiencing limitations resulting from a range of conditions. The OTA/PTA enables clients to meet their expected outcomes by effectively utilizing a variety of therapeutic techniques and tools. This program ensures students develop the knowledge, skills and practical experiences necessary to work with a variety of client groups. Using a hands-on learning approach, students will demonstrate competencies in effective communication, critical thinking, and active problem-solving skills, making them a valuable member of the rehabilitation team.
