OT Aquatic Therapy - Special Interest Group

Public·25 members

Hello! I’m so excited to be a part of this group. I’m the Director of Occupational Therapy Services at a pediatric clinic. In the last couple of years I have transitioned to working in the pool with clients. Most of the clients I work with in the water are autistic, and to see them thrive in water, receiving the sensory input that the water can provide, and making progress in their water safety, motor skills, communication, etc is so exciting! I look forward to learning from this group!

Use code OTBOGO for any webinar (value $90 or less) and get another webinar of equal or lesser value free. (May we recommend this one done just for OT providers?) Take a moment to tell us about yourself in the comments below and then invite OT provider friends to join the SIG.

ATU was once told that OTs "do not provide aquatic therapy services". Below, you can read our (comprehensive) response.


Aquatic therapy is a water-based therapeutic tool that is taught in OT school as a hands-on procedure; used in practice by occupational therapists/assistants; and routinely reimbursed by payers.

Since 2010, Aquatic Therapy University/ ATU Aquatic Therapy Seminars have provided aquatic education across the world (Canada, The Netherlands, Puerto Rico, USA, Malaysia, Hong Kong, Singapore, India and more).
