Many people think occupational therapy helps with employment or career guidance. This program clears up any misunderstanding and gives students a solid overview of what an O.T. Assistant does. Illustrating the responsibilities of the O.T.A. and the skills and personal qualities needed to become one, the video also describes the pay level and personal satisfaction that many people in the job have achieved. Including interviews with a number of accomplished O.T.A.'s, the program shows viewers the wide variety of settings in which the work can take place-from homes and offices to clinics around the country, in the case of itinerant assistants. Another important subject is building the right skill set and a basic knowledge of human anatomy through volunteer work and by taking the proper biology classes in high school.
