A while ago I had the idea to start a little OT Journal Club where I would read an open access article, summarize it briefly and share my insight. My first one was something I was super proud of (read here) but then I fell off the wagon and haven’t been able to finish anotherContinue reading “Telerehabilitation in Occupational therapy – OT Journal Club”
If you have followed along with my blog since I started it in 2020, you might already know that I am an occupational therapist who graduated in November 2019 (my first blog post ever talks a bit about me).

I’m sure we’ve all played or heard of that silly little game called Among us (if you’re like me, you’ve played it A LOT during this past year as a way to connect virtually with friends).

I still have some infrequent social distanced walks for catch ups with friends, but I think that sometimes it can be difficult if you don’t haveContinue reading “Coffee date catch up”
If you have a child, have worked with a child, or have seen a child before, you are probably familiar with the pure JOY and excitement that children get from playing with bubbles. The moment that the kids at the daycare I work at see bubbles, it’s like absolute magic. Something that I learned recently,Continue reading “The Magic of Blowing Bubbles”
A while back I wrote a blog post about anxiety in childhood and teens from a webinar I took through the Institute of Child Psychology (see blog here).
