NY Times Newspaper Article About OT

When we read about OT's in the newspaper, we need to spread the word!

This is an article about an OT working with patients with brain injuries in a US rehabilitation hospital. It is a great article to explain what OT's do with patients during the rehabilitation process and it also shows the relationship between an OT and his/her patients.
