Occupational Therapy Facilities
Located on our University City campus, the Glasser/Woodland Hall complex is home to the health professions programs in the School of Health Professions at Saint Joseph’s University. Here, you’ll find state-of-the-art clinical laboratories, equipment and facilities that support the projects, research and evidence-based practice for our OT, PA, PT, PA and PharmD programs.
Pediatric Sensory Lab
OT students have access to the Sensational Kids Lab, a pediatric occupational therapy lab made possible by more than $30,000 in grant funding from, among other resources, the Christian R. & Mary F. Lindback Foundation and the McLean Contributionship. The lab features:
- A ball pit that helps with sensory feedback and gross motor activities
- Swings that aid in body control and balance
- A rock wall that helps children learn about three-dimensional space and weight-bearing
- Sound wired room that allows faculty to give students real-time feedback
The lab is an integral part of an OT student’s education each semester. First-year students are introduced to this space in their Interventions I class and use it to learn about treatment plans, evaluating patients, and case-based reasoning as they approach their clinical rotations in their final year.
