My story:
I am Margarita an Occupational Therapist and mother to 4 wonderful children ages 18, 16, 14 and 4. My husband is also a therapist. I currently work with children with medical complex diagnoses and disabilities in the area of South Florida. I have developed "Learning in the Kitchen" to promote independence in children of all ages in activities of daily living while cooking, having fun and playing. Meaningful occupation will allow children to enhance all the necessary skills to participate in age appropriate activities. In other words, children will work in fine motor development, eye-hand coordination, executive function and sensory-motor skills without even realizing they are doing it because their attention is focused for example on cooking not in the strengthening of the hand.
