  • "This was my first time at this conference. As an Occupational Therapist, I have not attended this type of conference in the past. I was very impressed with the scheduling and, despite a few glitches here & there, it seemed organized and offered many opportunities for training and for networking. I enjoyed being a "visitor" and was pleased to be able to present. Thank you for including me!"
