Participants Needed for Occupational Therapy Assessment Day

By Shannon Scott, September 20, 2022

Looking for Volunteers to Help Senior Occupational Therapy Students Practice Administering Assessments

The Occupational Therapy program at Ithaca College is recruiting adults over the age of 18 to participate in programming that will assist senior occupational therapy students in learning how to administer various health assessments.  Working in pairs, students partner with a community member to practice administering various occupational therapy assessments.

The assessments administered focus on a range of physical, leisure, social, cognitive, and functional skills. The students are practicing administering the assessments only, and no results will be given.
