Indiana State University has introduced the new Occupational Therapy Program to help meet that need.
The eight semester program will include 27 weeks of clinical experience.
Classes begin May 13th and there are only a few spots left.
The program's Clinical Coordinator says the field is for people who are willing to put others first.
