New Here :)
Hello all, I am an occupational therapy student at the University of Kansas Medical Center. I am currently working with a man who had a stroke about a year ago. I am hoping to come on this site and listen and learn from all of you if you do not mind! If there are any questions or concerns please feel free to let me know!

We are most pleased that you have found us and recognize that those of us with lived experience have something of value to offer. While this group is designed as a place where support may be found for those seeking support, it also is a place where many of us are able to utilize the skills and abilities that we do we do have. You may find that you can do more than listen and learn. I for one would welcome any questions you may have regarding our posts. I am certain that any assistance we provide you in your journey to become an occupational therapist will only lead to improved service to others in our position.
