Search this Collection
The Occupational Therapy Board was created in 1977 to regulate the practice of occupational therapy. The role of the board is to investigate complaints and take appropriate action, make and enforce laws and rules regarding occupational therapy practice, establish continuing education requirements, process applications and issue license and renewals, and collect fees and authorize disbursements of funds. The mission of the board is to protect the public by supervising occupational therapy practice. The board is comprised of five volunteer members: two occupational therapists, one occupational therapy assistant and two public members. Each member is appointed by the governor and may serve up to two four-year terms. The board is self-supporting and activities are financed solely from licensure and related fees.
