Over the past five years, the Occupational Therapists industry has grown, due to the burgeoning elderly population requiring occupational therapy for age-related ailments. Additionally, autism is the fastest growing development disability, which has boosted patients demand for industry services to aid with developmental activities, among other daily tasks. In the next five years, industry revenue is forecast, driven by the continued demand from the elderly population. Moreover, as healthcare insurance providers seek to cut costs, many will provide favorable reimbursements for noninvasive outpatient treatment options, including occupational therapy.
