JN Courtney Children's Book Author Occupational Therapist

Events

I speak as an author, an occu­pa­tion­al ther­a­pist, and some­times both! I enjoy speak­ing to audi­ences from pro­fes­sion­al orga­ni­za­tions, schools, libraries, and com­mu­ni­ty centers.

If you would like to have me do a school vis­it or speak to your group about Occu­pa­tion­al Ther­a­py, please con­tact me.
