Providing care to help clients successfully participate in activities of daily life
In The Tabor/Connor Family Occupational Therapy Center for Learning, Participation, and Rehabilitation (Tabor/Connor OT CLiPR), students apply what they have learned in the classroom by providing pro-bono services to youth and adult client volunteers from the greater Boston community. These client volunteers have a variety of physical, developmental, mental, or behavioral health needs that impact their ability to successfully participate in their lives. Experienced OT faculty and licensed practitioners closely supervise the students.
Within the OT CLiPR is the Functional Living Lab (FLL), an apartment-style setting where students guide clients to practice life skills such as self-care tasks, meal planning and cooking, budgeting, and pre-work skills.
Adult services consist of individual and group opportunities. Sessions may focus on self-care, household chores, functional cognition, social activities, leisure and community activities, exercise, and wellness.
Pediatric services provide opportunities for youth to improve play, social interactions, mealtime, and movement activities through active engagement. Parents, caregivers, and family members are an integral part of developing and supporting children’s participation within sessions, home, and community activities.
Through an active-learning curriculum, students develop essential skills needed for practice as an occupational therapist. The Tabor/Connor OT CLiPR is equipped with a kitchen, living room, bedroom, bathroom, and private treatment area. Video capture enables observation and analysis of lab competencies and client interactions.
