The Learning Resource Center (www.lrcegypt.org: under construction) in Maadi, Egypt has an OT staff position available. Managemnet is interested in hiring a full time female OT who speaks English/Arabic. At least two years experience in pediatrics is required.

Please contact Maha Helali, Managing Director, if interested in learning more about the post: mhelali@lrcegypt.org

Conference Update

I am happy to say that the educational conference "Road Map to Positive Behavior" was an overall success. All four OT's who presented (Angela, Fatima, Majdi and Farah) reported that the participants in their lectures were enthustiastic about the topics and they said that they learned a lot of new information. OT's, PT's, teachers, psychiatrists, psychologists and parents attended the variety of lectures (i.e. seating recommendations for physically challenged children, sensory integration and behavior in the classroom, and how to manage handwriting difficulties).

I hope that OT's continue to present at educational conferences in Cairo, such as the March conference that the ADVANCE and LRC present each year.

Many thanks to all that presented,
