Happy C&FD Anniversary to Marion Wilm

Marion Wilm OTR/L C/NDT is the most tenured and experienced occupational therapist on our team.  She is celebrating 23 years at Child and Family Development this month.   

She shares: ‚ÄúOne thing that has not changed over the years is that people often don‚Äôt understand the term ‚ÄúOccupational Therapy‚Äù.  No, we are not preparing kids for ‚Äújobs‚ÄùHowever, we are preparing them for the job of living their best life.  OT provides the foundation for children to fully participate in all of the activities (occupations) of their daily life.  Over the past few years, I have watched children that I met when they were infants, graduate from High School and pursue their dreams by attending college, job training programs or other opportunities that continue to stimulate them emotionally, physically and socially.  Some I’ve kept in touch with and many I hadn‚Äôt seen for years, but I am thankful that their parents contacted me just to share the huge successes in that child‚Äôs life.‚Äù
