Occupational Therapists Assistant (COTA)

Occupational therapy assistants work under the direction of occupational therapists in treating patients with injuries, illnesses, or disabilities through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. They help these patients develop, recover, and improve the skills needed for daily living and working.

  • Help patients do therapeutic activities, such as specific stretches and other exercises
  • Work with children who have development disabilities, leading them in play activities that promote coordination
  • Teach patients how to use special equipment; for example, showing a patient with Parkinson’s disease how to use devices that make eating easier
  • Record patients’ progress, report to occupational therapists, and do other administrative tasks
