OTA Mission & Curriculum

OTA's Mission

The mission of Green River College Occupational Therapy Assistant Program is to provide students with education to provide knowledge, skills, values and professional behaviors necessary to provide occupation-based intervention to a diverse population as successful entry-level occupational therapy assistants.

OTA's Curriculum Design

Five common threads have been identified as essential skills that will contribute to each student’s success while in program, fieldwork and the workforce. In each course, the student will find that faculty incorporates the identified common threads.  Each instructor is responsible for weaving the identified common threads into their curriculum and providing feedback during the Student Advising Period.
