The Occupational Therapy/Early Childhood Center Collaborative Research Fund was established to support the ongoing research efforts between the Department of Occupational Therapy (OT) and CSU's Early Childhood Center (ECC). 

CSU's Early Childhood Center, housed in the Department of Human Development and Family Studies, serves a three-fold mission of teaching, research, and service. The teaching mission is to provide hands-on learning opportunities for CSU students interested in careers working with children and families. The research mission is to promote opportunities for observational and applied research related to children, families, and early childhood education. The service mission is to provide quality play-based and child-directed educational programming for children ages 6 weeks to 6 years. Due to the center's mission, the ECC became a perfect pediatric fieldwork site for OT graduate students and faculty researchers. While at the ECC, OT students are concerned with how the children interact with their living and learning environments to engage in play-based learning that advances their development. OT students can observe, provide direct services, implement classroom based interventions, and introduce school-wide programming for the ECC children.

To date, the OT/ECC partnership has explored important research questions including:
  1. How can occupational therapists best support children in a play-based early childhood education center?
  2. Do parents see the value in occupational therapy interventions to support play-based education?
The Occupational Therapy/Early Childhood Center Collaborative Research Fund will support ongoing research efforts that assess access to occupational therapy in an early childhood setting, classroom based interventions, and the value of play-based education.
