Likewise, a day doesn’t go by where a parent, teacher or another OT asks questions or seeks guidance based on my 20 + years experience.
There was an obvious need for easy to understand information. That was the compelling reason for me to write a series of occupational therapy eBooks, that help parents, teachers, caregivers and other therapists to better understand and manage the challenges faced by children.
There’s a free eBook available – Enliven Your Child’s Days with Educational Activities and Parenting Best Practices when you join my mailing list, as well as eight other ebooks on a variety of topics.
