Would it be unheard of for a low-level para to work as an OTA?
Years ago, before I was injured, I wanted to be a PT, started out in college pre-pt. Long story short Voc Rehab convinced me to change my major to psychology.
I'm looking for a career switch (started graduate school for something else, but 2 years in I've decided it's not for me...I swear I'm not as flakey as this makes me sound), and I really want to go back to my original interests.
In order to be a full OT, I'd need to do quite a bit more school, there are some pre-reqs I'm missing. The appeal of getting to start much sooner is quite nice.
OTA sounds pretty good to me, but I'd love to hear reasons why it might not be a good choice from others... As far as OT vs. PT, I now feel like OT would be a better fit.
