Tips for Entry

Arrange to visit and observe an OT at their workplace to get an idea of which skills and abilities are needed on the job.

If possible, volunteer to help an OT or OTA to learn firsthand what the job entails.

In high school and college, get a broad education that includes biology and the behavioral sciences, as well as English, art, and other subjects that encourage personal expression.
