Extending OT's Scope of Practice

Here in the United States, OTs are facing some pretty disheartening reimbursement changes.

But, this week's article seems to lay the groundwork for arguing that instead of restricting OT, we should be seeking to expand the role of occupational therapy practitioners.

I found a lot of hope in this article, and I'll be very curious to hear what you think!
