A full life is one in which a person can rise above physical or mental limitations and focus on reaching his or her goals. Helping others meet life’s challenges can be the very definition of a person’s happiness, and we believe that those called to aid others will find an immensely rewarding career path as a therapist. Our highly-skilled and passionate instructors as well as our well equipped therapy skills labs send our Occupational Therapy Assistant graduates out ready to enrich the lives of others.
