NMOTA in a Nutshell

Written by Carla Wilhite

boybeinghelpedThe New Mexico Occupational Therapy Association is the only professional membership organization for occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants located in the state and focused on YOUR practice success in New Mexico. The nonprofit association's activities and Board are powered by volunteers from the community of occupational therapy practice. 


NMOTA brings value to members and the public by:

  • Advocating for the modality of occupation to be a core service of the recovery and rehabilitation process for people with health status changes.
  • Advocating for a robust scope of practice for occupational therapy in New Mexico via input to the legislative, regulation, policy, and legal processes impacting practice.
  • Ensuring the public knows about the benefits of occupational therapy to enhance the daily living of people with health challenges (singly, or in groups and communities) through client-centered interventions and treatment activities.
  • Promoting the health and well-being of all New Mexicans through engagement in valued and desired life activities, roles, and routines.
  • Ensuring occupational therapists in New Mexico (urban and rural) have access to high quality continuing education to improve competency in knowledge, skills, and attitudes related to the occupational therapy process.
  • Supporting the success of occupational therapy students in all educational programs across the state through scholarships, opportunities for leadership, and sponsoring student initiatives.
