Occupational Therapy Practitioners Offer Health Care Solutions on Capitol Hill
Date:9/30/2013

he National Center for Medical Rehabilitation Research (NCMRR) at NIH
  •     Encourage funding for special education by explaining the impact that federal special education funding cuts have on the ability to provide services to students with disabilities
  • The goal of Hill Day is to educate legislators that occupational therapy plays an essential role in meaningful and effective efforts to improve society’s health, along with improving the health care system.

    Nationwide, more than 140,000 occupational therapy practitioners help people across the lifespan participate in the things they want and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities (occupations). Legislation supporting access to occupational therapy can reduce overall health care costs by facilitating independence among patients.

    Visit AOTA’s Legislative Action Center at http://capwiz.com/aota/home/ to learn more. See highlights from attendees in real-time by following @AOTAEvents and #OTHillDay.

    Founded in 1917, the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) represents the professional interests and concerns of more than 140,000 occupational therapists, assistants, and students nationwide. The Association educates the public and advances the profession of occupational therapy by providing resources, setting standards including accreditations, and serving as an advocate to improve health care. Based in Bethesda, Md., AOTA’s major programs and activities are directed toward promoting the professional development of its members and assuring consumer access to quality services so patients can maximize their individual potential. For more information, go to http://www.aota.org.
