About the Board

The Ohio Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Athletic Trainers (OTPTAT) Board is responsible for the regulation of the practice of occupational therapy, physical therapy, and athletic training in the State of Ohio. The board was established in 1976 as the Occupational Therapy Board. In 1977, regulation of physical therapy was transferred from the Medical Board to the Ohio Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy Board. In 1990, licensure of athletic trainers was added to the responsibility of the Ohio OTPTAT Board.

The regulation of the three professions includes: issuing and renewing the licenses of properly qualified individuals; investigating complaints against licensees; monitoring compliance with mandatory continuing education requirements; and educating licensees and the consumers of the services provided by the board's licensees on the laws and rules that govern the practice of occupational therapy, physical therapy, and athletic training in Ohio and the board's role to promote and protect the health of the citizens of Ohio through effective regulation of these three professions.

Board Mission

The mission of the Ohio OTPTAT Board is to actively promote and protect the health of the citizens of Ohio through effective regulation of the professions of occupational therapy, physical therapy, and athletic training.
