Expertise Contributions*
In my work as an OT with kids with disabilities for last 12 years I have gained experience that gives my wide scope of how important play is in every human beings life and what play and the opportunity to play can contribute to the quality of life. My knowledge of public health and universal design can also contribute to the conception of context of play; how play can be adapted or play environment designed for everyone in physical or subjective sense
