I've said before that I'd rather browse around online, read the news, the daily gossip, browse other blogs and whatever else I stumble across. This is my way to unwind. Tonight while checking out what's going on in the world, I learned it is National Occupational Therapist Month in Canada (and other countries.)
Prior to my introduction to the World of Preemies, I knew the basics of what an Occupational Therapist was, but I did not know they also worked with newborn babies. My concept of an OT was that they worked in some form of rehabilitation for individuals who have suffered illness or injury and required one-to-one help with re-learning physical life skills.

Thankfully we have access to many options and services for our boys. We have been able to work with a particular children's centre for development and so we have had the privilege of having two different OTs, who focus on different areas of our twins' development.
