About the Creator

Sarah Lyon, OTR/L

The release of this manual is the achievement of a dream of mine. I remember squeezing the time in between patients to create a fieldwork manual from scratch and dreaming of a website where I could share resources with other OTs so we could all focus on what we love most: great client care.

I've spent several years building this site to (hopefully) be a reliable resource for fellow OTs. It was a huge learning curve to create a website and digital products. Thank you to those who have supported me along the way!
