Occupational therapy is skilled treatment that helps individuals learn or re-learn daily living skills, which may include dressing/bathing, feeding, fine motor, and play/hobbies.
The primary purpose of OT is to insure that individuals achieve or maintain their capacities to function in daily activities at a level which allows as much independence as possible.


The West Virginia Board of Occupational Therapy regulates and licenses persons providing occupational therapy services to the general public in the State of West Virginia.

The Board's purposes are to protect consumers and promote quality of occupational therapy services, and to assure the highest degree of professional care and conduct on the part of occupational therapist and occupational therapist assistants.


The Public Comment Period is now open for a proposed Legislative Rule regulating Telehealth Practice for Occupational Therapists and Occupational Therapy Assistants.  Please see Legislative News under Board News above to view the proposed Rule.
The Board office is staffed during normal business hours, Monday - Thursday, 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.  However, if mailing applications, verification requests, or other correspondence to the Board, please use U.S. Postal Service.  Our building is closed to the public, which will prevent other carriers from accessing our office for deliveries.
The next Board meeting will be held on Friday, September 25, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at the office in Morgantown.
