Our Background
Occupational therapists are skilled professionals whose education includes intensive study of human growth and development with specific emphasis on the social, emotional, and physiological effects of illness and injury.

Occupational therapists study:

  • human anatomy (body structure)
  • kinesiology (the science of human movement)
  • neurology (the nervous system)
  • the practical application of anatomy, kinesiology and neurology to physical rehabilitation.

Our Credentials
All of our occupational therapists have graduated from fully accredited colleges and universities, often with advanced degrees, and have passed a national certification examination.

Occupational therapists are licensed by the state of Maine and are required to stay current in their area of practice through completion of continuing education.
