The Adult Occupational Therapy Teaching Clinic at Puget Sound offers services to members of the community who have physical or cognitive deficits affecting areas of life such as self-care, home management, community participation, and leisure activities. In turn, occupational therapy students in the second year of the program gain skills in evaluating and treating adult participants while under the supervision of a licensed occupational therapist. Sessions are scheduled Tuesdays and Thursdays from February through April, with sessions 45 minutes in length. Participants are responsible for arranging their own transportation.
Common diagnoses treated at the clinic:
- Cerebrovascular Accident (stroke)
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Traumatic Brain Injury
