                  Our Occupational Therapist Alana presented her research on education and educational models this past weekend at the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) Annual Conference & Expo in New Orleans, LA. Alana also spent time engaging in multiple workshops and short courses including learning the newest evidenced-based practices for working with children in the areas of sensory processing, motor control/planning, and executive functioning. Congrats to Alana and we look forward to utilizing these new researched techniques and ideas within our practice!
