Functional Living Lab
The Occupational Therapy Functional Living Lab (FLL) is an active-learning area which includes a kitchen, living room, bedroom, and bathroom. It allows students in the entry-level Doctor of Occupational Therapy (OTD) program to seamlessly move from the classroom and immediately put into practice what they learned without leaving the lab.
The FLL has cutting-edge video capture technology that enables students to view and review activities that happen in spaces where they are not having direct contact with a client. Each student also has an opportunity to try things out for themselves in the FLL. It’s a much better way for students to learn and not worry about making a mistake.
The Functional Living Lab also serves as our onsite Occupational Therapy Center for Learning, Participation, and Rehabilitation (OT CLPR) where occupational therapy students learn to assess, intervene, and provide specialty services at no cost to clients of all ages in the Boston community and beyond.
