Students at IC have the opportunity to participate in a unique
program called Center for Life Skills. In this interdisciplinary
program with physical therapy, speech language pathology and
therapeutic recreation students, OT students are exposed to
learning situations involving adults with various neurological
impairments. Programs for improvement in areas of occupational
performance are provided for participants. Included in this program
are aquatic therapy and intergenerational activities. The program
takes place at Longview, an adult residential facility across the
highway from Ithaca College.
