What do you love about being an OT?

“I am passionate about constantly furthering my knowledge in many areas of pediatric OT practice to provide the best intervention for my clients. For example, I am very interested in understanding the retention of reflexes and how it impacts a child’s ability to function, as well as programs that assist in reflex integration, such as Rhythmic Movement Training. I love seeing how programs like these can have a positive impact on a child’s daily life.”
