Clinical Education & Volunteering
Occupational Therapy Students
The occupational therapists at Sense-Able Solutions understand the importance of a high-quality, meaningful, and practical fieldwork experience. Our therapists are clinical instructors for both Level I and Level II fieldwork and we have worked with several colleges and universities that have OTR and OTA programs including Quinnipiac University, Bay Path College, Manchester Community College, and Goodwin College.
Level I students typically complete a project, at one site, over the course of the semester, along with some observational opportunities in other Ädelbrook settings. Past projects have included: running a typing group in Ädelbrook’s Learning Center; setting up a “store” in our Transitional Academy; and developing sensory programs for individuals who live in Ädelbrook’s CRSs.
Level II students looking to complete their fieldwork at Ädelbrook must be independent, self-starters who are comfortable seeking assistance as needed. Due to the intensity of some of our settings all prospective students MUST interview with the Occupational Therapy Supervisor prior to final acceptance into our program.
Students who complete their Level II Fieldwork with us have the opportunity to work in a variety of settings and with many other professionals. They will be integrated into their primary setting as an occupational therapist and will be responsible for a full workload no later than mid-way through their fieldwork. Each student is also required to complete a project and in-service.
All fieldwork students (level I & II) must become Ädelbrook volunteers prior to beginning fieldwork.
Please contact Bernice Jalbert, Ädelbrook’s Volunteer Coordinator, a minimum of 4 weeks prior to your anticipated start date to allow all background checks to be fully processed.
Fieldwork Coordinators should contact the OT supervisor, Linda Denton, if they are interested in placing students at Ädelbrook.
