Customer Reviews

Carleighhrae ,

A really good resource for such a little known profession.

As a new-ish OT (2 years out of school) there are limited resources about our profession. I love that you cover such a wide variety of topics. Please keep it up and know that you have love and support out here in the community.

lots of love lexi :) ,

Such a great podcast!

Hi, I am a senior in high school and your podcast has helped me learn more about occupational therapy! I will be shadowing at a pediatric outpatient rehab next semester and your podcast is helping me learn more about OT. Thank you for being honest and keeping things real with the positives and negatives of OT!

Love listening

I enjoy listening to this podcast during my work days! I’ve been working in pediatrics since I graduated in 2016 and recently went from the outpatient setting to home health. Though not all topics apply to my area of practice - I love hearing about experiences and tips/tricks that I could carry into my own treatment planning. Hopefully more episodes keep coming out. I’m very appreciative of the time and effort it takes to make this happen!
