Episode Summary

Occupational therapy assistants play a vital role in the profession of occupational therapy. Dave Merlo, MS, COTA/L, CPRP, ROH joins me on the show today and shares a glimpse into his career as an occupational therapy assistant.

Throughout his career, he has created success in various non-traditional therapy roles, including being a professor at an occupational therapy assistant program and being on the American Occupational Therapy Association Board of Directors.
