The Occupational Therapy Licensure Compact (OT Compact) is an interstate compact, or formal agreement among states, that facilitates interstate practice of occupational therapy. Under the OT Compact, Occupational Therapists (OTs) and Occupational Therapy Assistants (OTAs) who are licensed in good standing in a Compact member state may practice in other Compact member states via a “compact privilege.” Wisconsin has enacted OT Compact legislation (2021 Wisconsin Act 123) and is currently planning for its implementation. It is estimated that the compact will be in effect in Wisconsin by 2025.  Information about the OT Compact can be found at this link:
