I am a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant with close to a year of experience. I am looking at moving to Chicago in September and was wondering what salaries are looking like. I am looking to be in any setting other than peds or mental health. If anyone could give me some info it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

A good friend is part of the HR staff at the well respected Rehabiliation Institute of Chicago. I believe it is their policy to prefer to hire "Flex" staff of full fledged OTs and call from their registry of general "patient care techs" (largely CNAs, but also other certified assistants..) vs having a lot of full time OT Assistants. This may vary from other institutions... https://ricc-hr.silkroad.com/epostin...6087&version=1

I believe there is a VERY SIGNFICANT wage difference between OTs and OTAs at RIC (like four or five grades..) with OTs earning around $40 before benefits and OTAs about a 50% reduction...
