    Little Knights Pediatric Occupational Therapy Clinic

    The Little Knights Clinic (LKC) is a student-run pediatric clinic that provides pro-bono occupational therapy (OT) services to underserved children in the Erie community.  The LKC student board members and student volunteers work alongside an OT faculty member to collaborate and deliver services. This opportunity provides students with valuable hands on experience that will help them become better future clinicians.

    We currently offer services in-person at Gannon’s Human Performance Lab in the Recreation and Wellness Center. Masks, a temperature check, and a quick COVID screening are required for all therapy sessions. Our faculty and students are eager and dedicated to serving our community hands on, taking safety precautions very seriously. We also have tele-therapy interventions available.

    • The clinic is open for children ages birth - 21 years with a physician prescription for OT services.
    • OT services can help improve cognitive, social, sensory, and motor skills to enhance success with play, school and daily living skills.
    • The LKC offers occupational therapy services by 4th year Gannon OT students under the supervision of licensed OT faculty.  
    • A recent initiative has started at Mother Theresa Academy as well, where Gannon OT students and faculty travel to offer in-school therapy services.
