Welcome to the Children and Youth SIS

Designed for occupational therapy professionals providing services to pediatric clients and their families beginning at birth through adolescence. 

 This special interest section (SIS) is a group aimed at helping occupational therapy practitioners in NC provide high quality care to our clients and their families. Our desire is to provide resources that specifically address needs and concerns of practitioners working with children and youth. We also want to develop a community where therapists can come together to encourage one another, share opportunities, ask questions, and be advocates for change in our state.
