Physical and Occupational Therapists

Physical and Occupational Therapists conduct evaluations and provide therapy to adults and to children of nursery and school age through the outpatient department or at contracted community programs. Therapists provide assistance to educational programs in order to identify the influences of sensory-motor, perception and motor maturation on learning styles.
