AOT, Inc. was established as a private occupational therapy practice in December 1980 by Cynthia Thomas, Hanna Gruen and Carol King-Etzel. Their vision was to begin an independent practice dedicated to providing high-quality, personalized occupational therapy services on a contractual basis. Incorporated as Associated Occupational Therapists, it was a home-based business, located in Sewickley, Pennsylvania.
Now in its fourth decade, AOT has grown to be a leading provider occupational therapy and physical therapy services throughout Western Pennsylvania. Cynthia Thomas is currently the sole owner and president.
