Over fifteen years ago (January 2001) I started to write down some of the things I learned from my experiences as an Occupational Therapist. I initially planned to make a clearinghouse site for parents and limit it to issues related to Sensory Integration.
Later, as a parent of three children, and going through a divorce, I put this plan on hold. There was little time to write outside of that required for work and the many things to do as a parent. About all I could do was bookmark websites helpful to me both professionally and personally. I then added handwritten notes to myself for specific issues that arose. I planned, without a timeline, to return to this information at a future time and share it somehow.
Eight years ago, I met a wonderful person, a Peruvian transplanted to Northern New Mexico, and remarried. We both came into the relationship with children from prior marriages. We went about blending together a new family, an adventure that continues daily. With loving encouragement, I began to make time for my dreams and recommitted to sharing occupational therapy digitally.
