Welcome to the Occupational Therapy Association of Oregon!

Click here to register! Monday, March 13th to Advocate for Occupational Therapy in Oregon

We heard from you at the annual OTAO conference this year about the dire state of OT caseload sizes in school-based care and the lack of rural OTs in Oregon. Since the conference, OTAO has pursued and built legislative support for change. In the 2017 Oregon legislative session OTAO will introduce bills to improve rural access to care and reduce OT caseload sizes. We cannot improve access to OT services or protect the OT scope of practice without your help. Register here today.

Each participate will have the opportunity to have a guided meeting with their legislators and to participate in direct action for positive change for OT in Oregon.
