This blog chronicles my OT journey starting from 2006 in the beginning of OT school, through 9 months of fieldwork, to my first year as an OT working in rural Deep South in physical dysfunction, to my transition into an elementary school system district in California. I'm in my third year now and learning new things every day. My mind is constantly blown by the amazingness of OT!

OTs never stop learning
When meeting a fellow very passionate OT for lunch (Patti, LOVE HER) at a sushi place, we end up sharing ideas. In this case, a concept borrowed from S'Cool Moves. We used chopsticks as our tapping sticks and stuck the post-it to the soy sauce to use as a vertical surface, the music playing in the restaurant was our beat, etc. She had me practice it. It was surprisingly hard. It's got so many great benefits (the quadrant tapping) in regards to rhythm, bilateral coordination, rapid naming for sight words, etc. I'll hopefully explain more later as she also helped re-spark my OT mojo so I have like ten things I want to talk about.
