Occupational Therapy

An occupational therapist helps people of all ages do the things they want to do and need to do through the therapeutic use of everyday activities. Maryville University’s nationally accredited graduate program in occupational therapy offers individuals a promising career in this fast-growing discipline. Whether it’s helping an elderly stroke patient find a new way to dress herself or teaching socialization skills to a little boy with cerebral palsy, an occupational therapist makes it possible for people to live independently and enjoy life’s activities.
