Occupational therapy celebrated in Clifton Springs

Occupational therapists from across the country are gathering in Clifton Springs this Saturday, June 3, to mark the 100th anniversary of a landmark meeting in their field — the day occupational therapy was founded as a professional discipline, at a meeting in the village.

On March 15, 1917, a small group of pioneers in the occupational therapy profession gathered in Clifton Springs to found the National Society for the Promotion of Occupational Therapy, now named The American Occupational Therapy Association, Inc. (AOTA). Today AOTA, based in Bethesda, Maryland, has a membership of approximately 60,000 representing the interests and concerns of over 200,000 practitioners and students throughout the United States
