Who We Are

We are an occupational therapy specialty clinic within Gainesville’s greater Equal Access Clinic Network that is run by students in the UF MOT Program, supported by the UF OT faculty, and guided by local volunteer clinicians.

What We Do

We provide pro-bono OT services every Thursday night during the time period that the UF MOT program is in session from 6-8 pm. We are located above the CVS on SW 13th Street (across from Steak ‘n Shake). Appointments and walk-ins are welcome. No referral necessary.

What To Expect

If you think of occupations as the important roles and activities that you do throughout the day—to occupy your time meaningfully and purposefully—then you can understand occupational therapy as a way you do what is meaningful to you. This can include tasks such as getting dressed, establishing a daily routine, managing your medication, or doing the laundry, but it can also entail activities like playing guitar, trialing adaptive sports, navigating the community, or creating pottery. The possibilities are endless! If there’s something in your life keeping you from what you’d like to be doing then maybe you should consider OT.

Occupational Therapists ask:

“What matters to you?”

not,

“What’s the matter with you?”

-Ginny Stoffel

Where We Are Located
