Hello, I am really interested in becoming an occupational therapy assistant. I am currently in college right now and I am transferring to a hospital college to become an OTA. I just wanted to hear from any occupational therapy assistants, especially those who work in Fl. What is the starting salary and how much more you can make as you gain more experience. I am really interested in working with the older population, either in nursing care facilities/rehab centers or home health care services.
