Special Interest Sections

AOTA's Special Interest Sections (SISs) connect you to vast numbers of colleagues in your field and areas of interest through the SIS Quarterly Practice Connections compendium, discussion forums, and professional networking communities. Invaluable networking and resources are yours with unlimited Open Access to 11 SISs, their networks and subsections. Update your membership profile as often as your needs change!

As an AOTA member, you can join up to 3 SISs, and designate one as your primary SIS.
