What do you like about being an OT?
“I enjoy getting to know each child individually to find ways to best facilitate the development of his/her skills. Everyone comes in with their own interests, strengths, and areas for improvement. It’s a lot of fun to discover ways to engage, motivate, and challenge them to improve and refine their skills all through the very important “occupation” of play.”
