Occupational Therapy, working with young adult with leg stretches

Occupational Therapy

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.

Occupational Therapy (OT) is a healthcare profession that strives to increase quality of life and success in everyday life tasks through engagement in meaningful activities and the creation of healthy habits and routines.

Telehealth Appointment

In California, “telehealth” is defined as a method to deliver health care services using information and communication technologies to facilitate the diagnosis, consultation, treatment, and care management while the patient and provider are at two different sites. The two most common modes of telehealth for counseling are via 1) live videoconferencing either through a personal computer with a webcam or a mobile communications device with two-way camera capability, and 2) telephone

A therapist can only provide services to a student who resides in the state of CA. During each telehealth appointment the student’s current physical location and an emergency contact number will be obtained.

Mt. SAC is utilizing Zoom as the video platform to provide telehealth care. Mt. SAC has invested in the confidential and secure Zoom platform.

Important Note:

Continue seeing your primary health care and mental health providers. Occupational therapy does not replace the advice of your medical and mental health providers.
