  •  What is the ThAAA?

     Hey I am a part of this cool association called the ThAAA. It is a group of rehab assistants that work in speech, physio or occupational therapy. We also have some recreational therapy assistant aides that all come together to share info have some really good educational opportunities!

    Officially: Therapy Assistants are an integral part of our health care system. We are a group of trained, dedicated para-professionals, who as an association can shape our future! The association recognizes those Therapy Assistants who have valuable on the job training as well as assistants with formal education. In 2012, we began the Certification Process!
