Prepare for a profession that heals and empowers
The processes of physical recovery are among the greatest challenges a person can undertake — and also the most inspiring. As an occupational therapy assistant, you’ll work with clients of all ages to help them overcome the physical, developmental, social, or emotional challenges that interfere with their daily life. Austin Community College’s Occupational Therapy Assistant Program provides the education and hands-on clinical experience needed to help your clients work, play, learn, care for themselves, and enjoy leisure activities most of us take for granted. Upon successful completion of the program, students will be eligible to take the national certification exam.
Occupational therapy assistants provide crucial care under the supervision of an occupational therapist. The field of occupational therapy will continue to offer excellent job prospects, and as a large percentage of the population reaches senior citizen age, will be in even more demand.
