Occupational Therapist Assistants and Aides - Working conditions

The hours and days that occupational therapist assistants and aides work vary with the facility and with whether they are full- or part-time employees.

Many outpatient therapy offices and clinics have evening and weekend hours, to help coincide with patientsí personal schedules.

Occupational therapist assistants and aides need to have a moderate degree of strength, because of the physical exertion required in assisting patients with their treatment. For example, assistants and aides may need to lift patients. Constant kneeling, stooping, and standing for long periods also are part of the job.

Occupational therapist assistants and aides work under the supervision and direction of occupational therapists.

Employment is projected to increase much faster than the average, reflecting growth in the number of individuals with disabilities or limited function who require therapeutic services.

Occupational therapist assistants generally must complete an associate degree or a certificate program; in contrast, occupational therapist aides usually receive most of their training on the job.

In an effort to control rising health care costs, third-party payers are expected to encourage occupational therapists to delegate more hands-on therapy work to lower-paid occupational therapist assistants and aides.

Many occupational therapist aides and assistants work with the following professionals:

  • Occupational Therapist
  • Physical Therapist
  • Physical Therapist Assistants and
  • Physical Therapist Aides.

Other workers in the health care field who work under similar supervision include dental assistants, medical assistants, pharmacy aides, pharmacy technicians, and physical therapist assistants and aides.
