Sonia is absolutely passionate about the use of innate rhythmic and reflex movements to help students who are struggling with behavior, learning, anxiety, and ADLs.

The OT School House Podcast and website are designed and put together for occupational therapists, by occupational therapists. Every day, I strive to make the OT School House a place where therapists can come to feel welcomed, challenged and validated. In a setting where we do not always have someone to bounce ideas off of, I know we can all benefit from sharing and responding to our OT community.
