How informed are you?  Do you know the Rules and Regulations that govern how you practice? When was the last time you read the Rules and the Practice Act.
Are you aware that the Rules and the Practice Act are two separate documents?  Do you know the difference?
We encourage students, and new graduates to attend this very valuable seminar presented by Amy Carter.

Occupational Therapy Practice Act and Rules 
OT Rules 
As mandated by the Texas Occupational Therapy Practice Act, the OT Board adopts rules to govern the practice of occupational therapy in the state. The rules establish a minimum standard, ensuring that the public is adequately protected from poor practice and unethical practitioners.

OT Practice Act
In 1983, the 68th Texas Legislature passed Senate Bill 1213 enacting the Texas Occupational Therapy Title Act (Vernon's Texas Civil Statutes, Article 8851). The legislation established the Texas Advisory Board of Occupational Therapy (TABOT) and attached it as an advisory board to the Texas Rehabilitation Commission. Effective September 1, 1983, the board was charged with grandfathering by March 1, 1984, all qualified occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants who were working in the state of Texas.
