Research

Our faculty, alumni, and students are leaders in the occupational therapy field. The research they conduct, findings they present at national conferences, and corresponding articles and books they publish help shape the way occupational therapy is conceived, taught and practiced. Dr. Jane O’Brien’s textbook Occupational Therapy for Children and Adolescents, for example, is a leading resource in OT education, and has even been translated into Korean and Chinese.
