Hello, and thank you for visiting this blog. I am an occupational therapist specializing in Assistive Technology. I am an alumnus of Washington University in St. Louis. I have been practicing as an occupational therapist for 22 years, 19 of which were spent working for a large public school district in the Memphis, Tennessee, area as an OT with a focus on A.T. I hold a specialty certification as an Assistive Technology Professional (ATP) through the Rehab Engineering & Assistive Technology Society of North America (RESNA). I have recently joined the faculty in the Department of Occupational Therapy at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center as the Faculty Practice Coordinator.
My professional interests include working with individuals with disabilities, their families and caregivers, and other professionals in the field through direct intervention, consultation, training, and research efforts to decrease barriers for people with special needs through strategic design, selection, and implementation of A.T. materials and devices based on thorough assessment of individual needs.
Thanks for reading; please feel free to comment and/or ask questions at any time if you would like in the Comments Section following a post.
