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.


Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Board staff is working under modified work conditions and/or remotely. As always, we will do our best to process applications and/or Board-related matters quickly.  The best way to communicate with the Board at this time is through email using the "Contact Us" tab above.  Voicemail will also be checked regularly.  We appreciate your understanding during this unprecedented time and wish you good health.
