Welcome! Our department is located in the lower level of the Cohen Center. When you enter, please follow the signs leading to the Department of Occupational Therapy. Our secretary, Tina Forschler, will be happy to assist you. We offer a variety of classroom lab environments for authentic student learning experiences.
Students, pictured right, are learning to use pediatric sensory-motor equipment under the supervision of a faculty member.
Our activities of daily living lab is set-up to reflect a home apartment setting. Pictured left, students practice chair-to-bed transfers in the bedroom.
In the creative and industrial lab, students learn how to make custom hand splints and braces, which are used extensively by occupational therapists to enhance occupational performance and stabilize joints following surgical procedures or injury.
Our clinical lab setting provides students the opportunity to practice evaluating and assessing client function across the lifespan.
Our state of the art computer lab offers students the opportunity to learn about technology applications for management, research and clinical intervention. Students learn how to adapt microcomputer technology to assist individuals with disabilities to participate in desired daily occupations, including environmental control, computer access, wheelchair technologies and voice output communication devices.
