The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA)

The Montreal Cognitive Assessment (MoCA) is a tool commonly used to assess cognitive impairment. Occupational Therapists are one of several professions permitted to administer and score the MoCA. As of December 1, 2020, you will need to be trained and certified to administer this assessment.

OSOT is pleased to offer members access to this training at a price of $125 which is roughly a savings 25% off the cost of purchasing it from the MoCA program directly. Non-member OTs also receive a smaller discount purchasing access through OSOT.
