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 Board office will be closed on Monday, May 29, 2023 for Memorial Day.
Effective immediately, the license expiration date for WV licensed Occupational Therapy Assistants has changed from December 31st to June 30th of the following year.  For more information, click here.
