Justin Lundsedt, OTR/L

Justin Lundstedt is an occupational therapist with over 20 years of dedicated service. His career has predominantly been in the realm of special education, where he specialized in working with autistic students and those with developmental, emotional, or learning disabilities.

Over these years, his passion has grown in the area of executive function development, particularly for teens and young adults. This interest stemmed from observing the challenges faced by students with executive functioning deficits as they transition into adulthood.

Recently, he has expanded his reach through 'The Executive Function OT', an online platform designed to share his insights and expertise.
His latest endeavor, the 'Empowered Parent and Professional' membership, aims to educate and support key figures in the lives of students facing executive function difficulties, bridging the gap between therapy and everyday life.
