TOTA and occupational therapy practitioners throughout the state of Texas owe a great deal of gratitude to State Rep. Garnet Coleman. Rep Coleman has been a big supporter and champion for healthcare, mental health, ECI funding, Medicaid Expansion, and more. His door was always open to us and his leadership will be greatly missed. Thank you Rep. Coleman for all the years of support. We encourage everyone to send him letters of gratitude.

TOTA’s 2022-2023 Legislative Agenda

The TOTA Board of Directors will be meeting to work on the strategic plan, goals for the association, and the Legislative Agenda. We have identified three possible areas of interest to the Texas OT community:

Pursue Legislation to be included in the Interstate Licensure Compact
Advocate for Occupational Therapy in Mental and Behavioral Health.
Pursue Legislation for clarification on Occupations Code Section 454.007 USE OF TITLE DOCTOR
An occupational therapist or occupational therapy assistant may not use the abbreviation "Dr.," the word "Doctor," or any suffix or affix indicating or implying that the person is a physician.
Complete this brief google survey to let us know what you would like for TOTA to pursue in the next legislative session.
