What an amazing and articulate girl! I don’t think anyone could get the message across any better. A fantastic lesson for anyone working with Learning Disabilities.
I think this should be shown in lectures at all OT teaching Universities.
I myself had a fantastic placement experience working with with learning disabilities and saw so much potential, enthusiasm and determination to learn with such wonderful personalities and character from people with Downs Syndrome.
There are so many misconceptions about OT and many people do not understand what it entails.
This is a great piece by an American Occupational Therapist..

Tomorrow is ”World No Tobacco Day” and you may wonder why I am posting today.
Well I thought it would be good to bring awareness to the event ahead of the day.
The theme for World No Tobacco Day 2013 is: ban tobacco advertising, promotion and sponsorship.
I am not blogging this to preach others about their habits or ”chosen occupations”, but I just like to promote good health and highlight any issues and events.
Please click on the pic for more information from the World Health Organization, where you will find lots of other health information and list of events and campaigns throughout the year.
I hereby pledge to study for the next 3 hours and not blog, post or comment until at least 13.30pm UK time!
