I am very interested in either a pta or ota program, and will be moving to Texas after graduation to work because of demand and higher salaries.

I was wondering what kind of salaries otas vs ptas can make as new grads? And overall? Is there any significant difference in pay between the two? Especially in the Dallas or San Antonio areas.

As per the standard salary rate of PTAs in Texas they make the highest in USA.
Different factors contribute towards an average PTA salary including experience, type of work setting and others like supply of Physical therapist assistants.
I think www.iphysicaltherapist.net/Physical-therapy-assistant-salary.html will give you more information about PTA salary.
Hope it helps.

Thanks, I know PTAs in Texas make the highest salary, which is why I will be moving there to work. That was not my question. My question is do PTAs or COTAs (Certified Occupational Therapy Assistants) make more $$ there? If anyone has any insight, that would be great, thanks.
