The College and a nonprofit offer free therapy to stroke survivors

A unique class at North Central College in Naperville has helped patients recover from a stroke while giving students hands-on experience.

Stroke Survivors Empowering Each Other (SSEEO) and North Central College have worked in tandem as part of a new program that provides free therapy for patients. The program has been very successful and emotional for both students and patients.

Kelly Frystak, assistant professor of occupational therapy at North Central, and graduate student Bailey Milet ’23 were featured on WGN-TV, for the work the College’s Master of Occupational Therapy students have done through this partnership.

“Our partnership helps students see patients see people rather than a case in a textbook or on paper,” said Frystak. “They really took them through the entire therapy process all the way from evaluation to discharge.”
