    I've written a couple of other blogs here about yoga; one was a general article about the benefits of yoga for our patients and for ourselves, and the other blog was about my experience trying laughter yoga at a local park district event.

  • Respecting Children with Disabilities

    Yesterday, we stopped at our favorite ice cream store to treat ourselves to hot fudge sundaes. Living in a relatively small town for a long time, I often find myself running into people that I know from some little pocket of my life, and while standing in line watching our sundaes being prepared, it happened once again. There was Lauren, with ...

While at the mall, ...

  • The Skilled Nursing Facility Conundrum

    Last week I was involved in a discussion regarding membership in the APTA. For once the topic wasn't new graduates but therapists who were members but no longer are. The question was, what would it take to bring them back in? What do they value? I responded by describing how a SNF functions. Fix that chaos and they'll return. SNFs are unique. ...
