Being an OT is the best job to have because it helps you so much personally. Whether you have little ones at home and you're savoring their development day by day or you have a family member who is going through a health battle, OT helps you help others.
This blog will stay up for a while and some of the ideas and activities will remain relevant for OT students, practicing therapists and others looking for ways to help kids learn. I recommend that you enter a specific topic in the Search textbox in the right-hand column on the page and peruse the posts that relate to that subject. There are many posts on Autism, Fine Motor, Sensory and School--as well as other assorted subjects.

Lots more living
Advice from a retiree: Invest a little money from every paycheck, live below your means, keep reading and learning, relish feeling awkward and clueless because it means you are growing, give lots of money and skills away to others in need, figure out why you're here on the earth--if you don't know why, read the Bible for clues.
