Occupational therapists work with people to solve problems that stop them participating in activities they want or need to do. Continuing to do meaningful activities is very important for people’s physical and mental health and quality of life.

Always ensure you are working with a registered occupational therapist who is registered with the Allied Health Practitioners Registration Authority (AHPRA).

Since 1 July 2012 all occupational therapists working in Australia are required to be registered to practice. This registration process is the legislative responsibility of the Allied Health Practitioners Registration Authority (AHPRA) and is operated through the Occupational Therapy Board of Australia.

The AHPRA website contains a directory of all registered occupational therapists in Australia - it also contains important information related to the making of a complaint against an occupational therapist.

Please contact the Registration Board on 1300 419 495 in the first instance for all questions and concerns relating to registration.
