With the current unemployment rate at 6.1 percent – an increase of 1.4 percentage points and 2.2 million unemployed persons over the past 12 months – people everywhere are fearful of how their careers will weather the current economic climate. However, launching a career as an occupational therapist or occupational therapy assistant might be a good idea, according to Laurence Shatkin’s, Ph.D., newly released “150 Best Recession-Proof Jobs” (JIST, 2008).

“The numbers don’t lie. Demand for occupational therapy services is on the rise, and new practitioners are needed to fill the demand,” said Penny Moyers Cleveland, Ph.D., OTR/L, FAOTA, president of the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA). “And, many occupational therapy programs meet the needs of people who have been out of school for a while or are changing careers.”
