How OT Changed One Family’s Life
I love reading about occupational therapy in the news, especially when it involves a happy caregiver or recipient of services. This article describes how OT dramatically helped one child with ADHD, OCD, and SPD and his family.
The Lactation and Breastfeeding Dyad
A two-fer interview discussing what it looks like working in the specialty area of lactation and breastfeeding.
On Monday I released a brand new podcast episode which was a little different than anything I have done before, but super fun to put together. Recently I asked the OT 4 Lyfe community what their go-to OT resources are. I compiled all the voicemails and comments and shared them in my most recent episode. I also announced the first, official Lyfer of the Month. The response so far has been amazing and I could not have done it without the help of all the Lyfers!!
Today marks the start of the next #30daymovementchallenge. We just finished 30 days doing 50 squats every day. And now we are on to… Planks! For the next 30 days, join me and the OT 4 Lyfe community in doing a 1 minute plank every single day. Wanna join in? All you have to do is post a video on your Instagram story and tag me @ot.4.lyfe so we can hold each other accountable #accountabilOT.
