CEU Course Description

While there are many personal and professional reasons why occupational therapists choose to enter private practice, a recent survey suggests that autonomy and financial issues are the predominant motivations. There are also opportunities for therapists to utilize skills across several practice settings and specialties by entering the private sector. Occupational therapists can exercise a greater deal of control and creativity over the work they do in this arena. Therapists surveyed about their private practice almost unanimously reported the move to this setting was a good career choice. For this reason, all therapists should know about private practice occupational therapy as an impactful, growing division of the field.
