The Department of Occupational Therapy is again offering an international
academic service learning option for occupational therapy majors
in Summer 2013, June 1-9.
Occupational therapy majors are currently required to complete 30 hours of service learning. Traditionally, this has been accomplished in the greater Cincinnati area where students have worked with and learned from persons who sustained traumatic brain injuries, are mentally ill, developmentally disabled, or local elementary school children.
Now, they have yet another option - to work with and learn from children who live in homes for children in Guatemala. Faculty, practitioners, and colleagues of the Department of Occupational Therapy accompany them. This is an exciting opportunity and privilege for all. Please freely continue to visit this website to learn more.
The 2012 trip was again a huge success! On a post-trip survey, the majority of persons who responded to the survey reported they would go again if given the opportunity and they would recommend the trip to others.
