Not just for the therapists

As a mom to a son with a rare disease I know how deep the passion runs in the therapists who choose to work with kids. I have gotten so much great insight from this podcast about the back end of their professions and it just solidifies how driven and empathetic they are. This is so full of important information and I’m so grateful it’s out there. Love all the collab with others.

Loving all the podcasts

I started listening from the first podcast last week and I’m loving it! The FW II mini series are my favorite! They are very insightful and I believe will help me prepare for my own FW II next year. I look forward to hearing the rest of the podcasts and catching up to the current ones ❤️

I can’t get enough!

Just finished episode 39 and I felt like it was speaking to me! As a new grad, I struggle with confidence and comparing my skills to coworkers with years of experience and their own trial and error. I love the reminder of knowing where I am at in my own journey and what I can provide to my client. I have really enjoyed all episodes and hearing what other OTs are passionate about and learning about the wide variety of practice areas. Thank you for creating this platform!
