Pre-Occupational Therapy

The Pre-Occupational track within the area of Exercise Science is a program designed to prepare students to qualify and apply for graduate schools in occupational therapy. Students should have an interest in working with people of all ages in a variety of settings, possess strong academic skills and demonstrate a commitment to wellness and health. Occupational therapists are licensed healthcare providers that provide services to individuals who are limited by physical injury, illness, psychosocial dysfunction, developmental or learning disabilities, aging or other difficulties that may inhibit daily function. Occupational therapy services include teaching daily living skills, developing perceptual-motor skills, improving integrative sensory function, designing and applying selected prosthetic or orthotic devices, utilization of assistive devices, and adaptation of the environment for individuals with special needs.
