A Perfect Good-bye Activity for Retiring OTs
At the end of our session yesterday with a class of middle school students with intellectual disabilities, the students and staff arranged a very nice send-off for their retiring OT.
The therapist was given a pretty water and marble-filled vase and was guided around the work table to receive a flower from each student. By the time the circuit was completed the vase was full.
