    Pet ownership and OT!

    My new rescue Ricky says "I may be just a four-year-old beagle, but even I can tell that this episode is an absolute must listen!" 

    I present evidence for OT's role in facilitating pet ownership for a variety of populations and propose a crazy idea.  Please let me know your thoughts and share this episode with all your OT-loving friends!

    OT and My Favorite Things

    OT and My Favorite Things

    Cue the music!

    "These are a few of my favorite things..."

    While talking to prospective students, I was extolling the value of OT as a career and talking about how you can do just about anything you want with an education in OT.  With this episode, I test whether that is actually true by searching for research about OT and skiing, baking, board games, and soccer!

The Positive Side ,

Great podcast!

I came across this podcast looking for something informational. I’ve learned so much about the OT profession in just a few episodes. I can’t wait for the next episode!
