OT and My Favorite Things
Cue the music! "These are a few of my favorite things..." While talking to prospective students, I was extolling the value of OT as a career and talking about how you can do just about anything you want with an education in OT. With this episode, I test whether that is actually true by searching for research about OT and skiing, baking, board games, and soccer!
