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.

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.
