AOTA adopts the first stand-alone Occupational Therapy Code of Ethics; therapists are required to abide by the Code or be censured. The 1926 Pledge and Creed was only aspirational and voluntary. AOTA creates 5 Special Interest Sections—Developmental Disabilities, Gerontology, Mental Health, Physical Disabilities, and Sensory Integration. 77% of the membership signs up for one of these sections. The Association begins a project examining the philosophical base of occupational therapy.
