Great for OT students!!

This podcast provides such a great insight into OT!! So helpful for anyone thinking about OT school! Would love to hear an episode comparing a MOT vs a DOT in school and after school.

Community OT

I just listened to the episode with Andrea LeFlore! I loooooved this episode! Andrea is so incredibly knowledgable and I had no idea this area of work was even a possibility in OT. Thanks so much for having her on. I have so many favorite interviews it’s hard to choose, but this one was particularly special right now.
