Exploring my Disabled Activism as a Meaningful Occupation

Last week I attended the BAMEOTUK Symposium, and I loved every minute! Although I am a white person I did relate to a lot of what the speakers were saying about activism. This made me think about my activism and activism as a meaningful occupation.

Using My Blog Purposely With Cerebral Palsy

Anyway, let’s get onto it…  For Occupational Therapy Month I wanted to talk about my views of occupational therapy and how this has changed, not just since qualifying but in recent… Continue reading How My Ambitions Have Changed Since Qualifying
