COVID-19 Update and Resources

MOTA recognizes the impact from the COVID-19 pandemic on occupational therapy practitioners, educators and students as we adapt to these uncertain times. Occupational Therapy practitioners across the state of Maryland have all been challenged to remain healthy and ensure safe practices to prevent further community spread. Please visit the MOTA Blog for the resources we have compiled for you.


Occupational Therapy Licensure Compact

The OT Compact will allow licensed OTs and OTAs to practice in all states that join the compact. Please see our Advocacy page for details about what the compact is–and ways YOU can support this effort.
