A New RASP Category as of April 1, 2017 – Supervised Occupational Therapist

Posted March 8, 2017

In order to build capacity and meet the needs of B.C. children with ASD, the Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) in collaboration with the Canadian Association of Occupational Therapists – British Columbia (CAOT-BC), the College of Occupational Therapists of British Columbia (COTBC), ACT and the Registry of Autism Service Providers Advisory Panel has put into place a new category for the RASP – Supervised Occupational Therapist. This category will be effective as of April 1, 2017.

The new category is intended for registered OTs new to the field of ASD who do not have clinical experience working with children with ASD under the age of six.  The intent is to allow OTs to invoice the Autism Funding: Under Age 6 program while they gain experience.  This experience will be gained while under the supervision of an experienced OT who currently qualifies to be on the RASP.
