Occupational Therapy

The occupational therapy advisors are:


Occupational Therapy is the use of assessment and treatment to develop, recover, or maintain the daily living and work skills of people with a physical, mental, or cognitive disorder. Occupational therapists also focus much of their work on identifying and eliminating environmental barriers to independence and participation in daily activities.

The demand for occupational therapy services is strong. The U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projected employment of occupational therapists to increase by 26% and of occupational therapy assistants to increase by 30% or
more between 2008 and 2018. This projection is based on the Bureau’s assumptions that demographic trends and advances in medical technology will continue to fuel demand for therapy services.
