The Occupational Therapy Department at the Munroe-Meyer Institute (MMI) provides pre-service clinical training for Occupational Therapy and Occupational Therapy assistant students from contracted professional programs. We offer a school-based pediatric fieldwork experience for Level I and Level II students. The majority of our staff provides educationally related services to students in a local school district. Early intervention educational services (birth to 3 years) are provided in ‘natural environments’, which can include home and/or community settings. Medical model learning opportunities are incorporated into each student’s experience according to availability. Level I students are paired with a different clinical instructor each day, and Level II students split their time with two clinical instructors, with distinctly different caseloads. We make every effort to expose our students to the full range of services provided by our experienced and specialized staff of pediatric therapists.
Every therapist on the OT staff participates in the professional growth activities necessary to maintain a current Nebraska license and NBCOT credentialing. Some of our current staff are AOTA Board Certified in Pediatrics and are involved in projects with local, regional, and national significance.
