Snug Vest

Thanks to everyone who joined us today to listen to our founder Lisa Fraser chat with Occupational Therapist Patty Zimmerman. She answered questions such as:
    • What does an OT do?
    • Have most kids with autism that you’ve worked with had sensory challenges?
    • What are the benefits of a clinic vs. a home based approach?
    • What is the first visit with an OT like? How could parents best prepare for it?
    • How can an OT influence what happens in the classroom?
    • Can you give examples of a few things OTs can do in the classroom to minimize sensory issues?

    Watch the interview and hear her answers below!
