Welcome to ALOTA!

The Alabama Occupational Therapy Association (ALOTA) is a member organization. ALOTA is the state-based professional organization and public voice for the occupational therapy profession within Alabama. Members consist of occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants, occupational therapy students, and corporate sponsors who employ occupational therapy personnel. ALOTA is a state affiliate of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA), which is the national professional association. ALOTA and AOTA share the common goals of working to advance the profession of occupational therapy, the public’s awareness of and access to needed occupational therapy services, and the contributions of occupational therapy to health, wellness, productivity and quality of life.
