At Mt. SAC our Occupational Therapist is passionate in working with students to develop and strengthen skills to enable them to succeed in not only their academic career, but their daily life activities. When meeting with the therapist students can expect to develop individualized treatment plans to focus on each of the student’s unique needs.
