Another OTD Motion!

Timothy J Wolf and 19 co-originators have submitted a motion to the Representative Assembly calling for the AOTA RA to "adopt an official policy supporting a single point of entry for occupational therapists at the doctoral level."

Despite a decision by the RA against the OTD single point of entry last Spring, this motion has been put on the agenda for the AOTA RA Fall online meeting November 12th-19th. 

NSYOTA encourages all AOTA members in New York to contact your AOTA Reps and share your position on this issue. When contacting your RA Reps, please include your AOTA membership number. Your RA Reps are Becky Bernhardt, OTD, OTR, C/NDT and Shannon L. Scott, OTD, OTR/L. Their contact information is as follows:
