THERAPY ASSOCIATION OF GHANA
The purpose of the Association is to advance and support the occupational therapy profession and OT
practitioners Occupational Therapist (OT), Occupational Therapy Assistant (OTA) and Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant (COTA) within Ghana.
The association is involved in the accreditation of pre-registration courses. This is accomplished by
tracking and acting upon legislative and financial issues that affect the profession, providing professional
development and continuing education opportunities to members, and serving member needs to
remain professionally connected with peers and recognized within the country for their work.
How do I get an Occupational Therapist's assessment?
Your first point of call should be to talk to your doctor about contacting an occupational therapist
locally. If you regularly see a social worker, nurse or other health care professional, they can also help
you contact an occupational therapist. Be prepared to describe any difficulties that you have and how they are affecting your daily life, or the lives of those who care for you. You may want to know how long it will be before you get an appointment, so remember to ask if there is a waiting list. An independent occupational therapist works outside the government hospitals, so there will be less waiting time, but these practitioners may charge more for their services.
