The Vermont Occupational Therapy Association is a non-profit, volunteer organization that provides a professional community for its members. We represent occupational therapy to the public, engage in activities to advocate for the profession, and provide continuing education opportunities for all occupational therapy practitioners.
We need your help:
VOTA and Falls Free Vermont are partnering to promote Falls Prevention Week in September. This is an amazing opportunity to raise awareness of the unique value of Occupational Therapy in home modifications and fall prevention. If you have any resources or ideas you have used with your clients of any age, and are interested and willing to share with our team, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. VOTA will submit these resources by July 23, to be included in a distribution packet to community resources in late summer. Thank you!
VOTA is looking for presenters for the
upcoming October 30th Conference.
VOTA is interested in exploring the areas of Geriatrics Safety/Home modifications, Transitioning from injury to home/community, Adaptive Sports, Supporting Functional Seating, Supporting Sensory Processing.
If anyone is interested in presenting on these topics please contact email@example.com. If anyone has interest in presenting on a different topic please contact the above email address to discuss ideas, objectives and possible participation in the VOTA Annual Conference.
