I am a third-year occupational therapy doctorate student at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. I am a Certified Occupational Therapy Assistant and received my Bachelor of Arts in Exercise Physiology from Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas. This Udemy course is a dissemination of my doctoral capstone project on sensory-motor and reflex integration programming and education in a school setting which I completed at Lawrence Public School's Kennedy Early Childhood Center in Lawrence, Kansas. My primary interest areas within occupational therapy are; pediatrics, neurodiversity, sensory-motor, and neurorehabilitation.
