A Word From Sarah Lyon, OTR/L

My hope is that the information in the occupational therapy section will empower you to become more involved in your treatment and aid you in seeking the best care.

Your questions and concerns are a valuable part of the conversation; please them on my social media channels.

The information contained on the occupational therapy pages should not be relied upon as a substitute for medical advice, diagnosis, treatment or other professional care.
