Sometimes “seeing is believing.”

There have been some very heartwarming stories
that have come from my career as a pediatric occupational therapist. Some of the key players in my work have grown up to become adults working in their communities or high school and college students, while others are continuing to work on their elementary school successes. And all of them are doing their very best at what they can do. But no matter where they are right now, every one of them still remains a treasure in my memories. There are some stories, however, that touch my heart in a way that I can hardly express in words. Those are the times that created a dramatic change in both the child and myself.
Our last blog post was an article by The Vision Rehab OT that discussed the importance of providing children with vision eye exams. Keeping that theme in mind, I’d like to share a guest blog I wrote for Dr. Anne Zachry, Ph.D., OTR/L, over at the Pediatric Occupational Therapy Tips blog, as part of a special series she hosted in honor of OT month. After you read it, I’m sure there will be tears in your eyes, too.
As always, thank you for reading and sharing my work!
