Friday Features

This week I...
- was told by the sibling of one of my early intervention clients that I am a superhero therapist :)  I wonder what my superpower is? His comment reminded me of this cover of a recent OT Practice magazine.

-started to say goodbye to some of the kids and families I work with. Due to an upcoming cross country move this summer, as the school year winds down, I'm seeing some of my students for the last time :(

Friday Features Links:
- Ellen Seidman of Love That Max, wrote an excellent Mother's Day article, What I Know About Motherhood Now That I Have A Child With Special Needs.

- Cheri Fraker of Food Chaining, posted an overview of medical research articles relevant to feeding therapists. Click here to read the summary.

- And last, but definitely not least, I absolutely love this idea to create homemade fidgets using playdoh, plastic wrap, and a sock, posted by OT Tools for Public Schools. I don't know about you, but after having a balloon filled with flour explode in a classroom, I definitely need some new ideas for homemade fidgets. Teachers do not appreciate having to clean up a flour explosion! And did I mention, no sewing involved!! That's always a plus for me!


  1. Thanks for mentioning the fidget toy! I made an argyle one for my PT buddy's husband who recently had elbow surgery--he's getting lots of edema in his hand and the hand exerciser we loaned him was too difficult to squeeze! Eek! Karen

  2. Abby I am sorry to hear about your moving/life changing. I know how stressful it can be to leave a job or area that you like and try to start over somewhere else all too well. Hopefully it will work out for the best, and soon!

    1. Hi Cheryl! California's great, but I'm looking forward to living on the East Coast for awhile. I think it will be a good change, and hopefully not too stressful, or at least a positive life stress!
