History and Purpose
The California Board of Occupational Therapy (BOT) was created with the passage in 2000 of the Occupational Therapy Practice Act (OTPA). It will license Occupational Therapists (OTs) and certify Occupational Therapy Assistants (OTAs) in California. It will also investigate allegations of violations of the OTPA by licensees and certificate-holders.
