Partnering with University Programs for AT Training

Programs located near university programs for assistive technology-related professional programs (occupational therapy, physical therapy, assistive technology, etc.) may find partnerships with those academic programs to be advantageous for both parties. Paraquad Inc. of St. Louis, one of the nation's oldest Centers for Independent Living, partners with the Occupational Therapy Program at Washington University. The attached protocol outlines the expectations of students engaging in fieldwork at Paraquad.

Lindsey Bean Kampwerth, OTD/ OTR/L, one of the students who completed this program, later became Director of the Assistive Technology Program at Paraquad. INTERNET LINK WARNING
