Free Pediatric Clinic
The Occupational Therapy Program at Samuel Merritt University seeks children to participate in a free pediatric clinic. Children will be treated by students in the Master of Occupational Therapy Program, whose work is overseen by four registered occupational therapists.
Occupational therapists help children who have difficulty engaging in the typical activities of childhood due to illness, injury, or developmental issues. An occupational therapist may help a child develop skills to improve his or her performance in self-care, play, and school activities.
