Posted on Wed, Mar 08, 2017

The American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) held its 2017 Annual Conference & Centennial Celebration March 30 - April 2 in Philadelphia, PA, with more than 1,600 informational sessions and 4,000 speakers to commemorate 100 years of this esteemed profession. The event was a mix of traditional Annual Conference proceedings with Centennial-influenced activities and celebrations.

 

Starting as the National Society for the Promotion of Occupational Therapy in 1917, today AOTA boasts a membership that is more than 200,000 and growing strong. With ever-growing numbers of elderly people and young children in need of occupational therapy services, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics calls occupational therapy one of today's fastest growing careers. These professionals help patients build, recover, and improve the skills needed for daily living and working.

 

From helping children with cerebral palsy in 1930 to working with amputee veterans in 1952 and those with autism in 2000, the profession touches the lives of every generation and background.
