  • Re: What is in a title... OTA/OTR

    I think you are focusing on the ''Title'' too much. If you are treated by the OTR as an equal but they are the one making the decisions regarding the Patients Plan of Care and you are the one carrying out the Plan does that NOT make you an Assistant. The patients don't really know the difference anyway and many of them don't care just so they get ...

I think it's six e stim and 6 ultrasound treatments that you do under the supervision of an already e stim certified OT or PT. You document each case. The supervising therapist signs off and after completion you are considered certified. You ...

  • Re: What is in a title... OTA/OTR

    I am not at all insulted by being called an ''assistant''. I went to school to become and OT Assistant. I work as an Assistant. I'm proud to be an Assistant. Yes, once we get to know our supervising Therapist they give us more responsibility. I don't have a problem with that. They are OTR's and they have completed the education and taken the state ...
