Intentional Thoughts. Impacting Lives. Scattering Joy.
I think – I search – I process – I write – I learn – I change…..
Every day in my clinical and teaching practices, I pause and reflect on what I am doing and why.
I am often challenged or baffled by new and unique situations or even common occurrences that I wonder if I can handle differently and get better outcomes. Parents often ask me excellent questions…that sometimes I can’t answer…..
So, I think and reflect, I search for additional resources or expertise, I process what I have learned, and intentionally integrate new information into my daily job as a clinical specialist in pediatric physical therapist. Hopefully, I edge toward better care and outcomes for the children and families I serve and with the students and therapists I teach and mentor.
This blog is part of my processing, writing as I question, learn, and share with others: families and caregivers, my colleagues, and others who care for and about children and disabilities.
My goals for this blog:
To improve the lives of children with neuromotor, musculoskeletal impairments and their families through the art and science of intentional, thoughtful clinical decision making and practice
To facilitate respectful professional discussions
To curate resources for therapists and families/caregivers on specific topics of interest
To consider current research and how it impacts our clinical practice and teaching
To design useful resources for families and therapists
