Innovation and Outreach
Intensive student engagement in research projects is beneficial to students' clinical practice and may influence their interest in pursuing an academic career in research. Our four innovative research labs are:
- Active Living and Quality of Life for Older Adults
- Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and ADHD
- The International Classification of Functioning, Disability & Health (ICF) and Recreational Therapy Evidence Based Practice
- Temple University Collaborative on Community Inclusion of Individuals with Psychiatric Disabilities
Our program's research, education, and service are guided by a respect for and understanding of cultural and ethnic diversity and human rights, while acknowledging that other challenges, such as racism, sexism, classism, and homophobia/heterosexism, interact with ableism and other disability-specific discrimination in ways that further limit community participation, inclusion, and active living.
