Occupational therapists are not only specialists in maximizing functional engagement of clients with disabilities, we are also equipped with a wide variety of skill sets that allow us to contribute to different projects and types of work in colleges and universities. This webinar will feature a scoping review of assistive technology for students with mental health disabilities in post-secondary institutions, that was funded by the OSOT Research Fund, and outlined some of the current and emerging roles for OT in higher education.

Join our presenter on May 15th  as she discusses:
  • Equipping OTs with a variety of transferable skills to work in colleges and universities.
  • Inspiring change from within, from hiring practices, academic curriculum development, to student services.
  • Current and emerging roles for OTs in higher education due to economic and political changes.
