The Representative Assembly of the American Occupational Therapy Association established an ad hoc committee to investigate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats of changing the occupational therapy assistant entry level degree from the current associate degree to either 1) include both the associate and bachelor’s degree as options for OTA education, or 2) elevate the entry level degree exclusively to the bachelors degree.A survey has been launched online to collect information from Occupational Therapy Assistant practitioners to allow the ad hoc committee to represent this stakeholders’ viewpoint. Similar surveys will be distributed to other key stakeholder groups over the next week.
Please take 10 minutes to answer the questions in this survey and respond by December 31, 2013.
