Join us on Thursday, April 11th, 7:00 - 8:00pm to learn about the positive impacts occupational therapy (OT) can have for every child's’ cognitive, social, and physical well being. This workshop, facilitated by three occupational therapy graduate students, will promote the health benefits of receiving occupational therapy services, discuss strategies that can be used at home and in the community, and address common misconceptions about occupational therapy.
Juana Guglielmino, Arielle Leva, and Isabel Iwachiw are second-year occupational therapy graduate students from Kean University.
Juana helped with The Cottage School’s summer program for many years and then taught preschool and elementary for a year before entering the graduate program. She found occupational therapy because of her love for working with children and she believes that OT is for everyone.
Arielle found occupational therapy as a second career. She comes from a background in environmental studies and believes that connection to nature is essential for health and well-being. Her interests lie in integrating the natural world and occupational therapy to promote healthy development and an invaluable sense of wonder.
As a former athlete, Isabel values and appreciates the benefits of physical activity and the positive outcomes it can yield with respect to emotional, social, cognitive, and physical well-being. Her occupational therapy graduate school experience, coupled with being a lifelong athlete, has guided her interest in child development and the positive benefits of play and physical activity.
