Michigan Gov Jennifer M. Granholm signed Senate Bill 921 earlier this month, licensing occupational therapists and occupational therapy assistants.

This marks the culmination of 5-plus years of work by members of the Michigan Occupational Therapy Association (MiOTA) with support from the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA).

The bill also revises the state’s definition of “practice of occupational therapy” based on the AOTA Model Practice Act, and establishes continuing education requirements for licensure renewal.
