We had someone message us asking what a day in the life of a COTA looks like!
We (Rachel and Jessica) are both Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants, Licensed in the state of Idaho (COTA/L). We worked with children in an outpatient clinic setting for over 7 years and in this episode we share what a “typical” day looked like in the clinic.
We also share some tips for fellow therapists!
Don’t forget to listen to the end, where we answer a listener question!
