Beit Issie Shapiro
Area of Work*
As an occupational therapist at Beit Issie Shapiro, I work directly with children with various intellectual and physical disabilities, promoting the development of functional skills and improving participation in all areas of life including play. In addition I provide consultation services through our Technology Consulting Center, presenting at workshops and providing personalized consultation on the use of tablet technology in therapy for children with disabilities.
Expertise Contributions*
As an OT my work is focused on improving the participation of children with disabilities in all areas of life, including engagement in play activities. Promoting the development of play skills is often a major focus of my therapeutic goals as play skills in children with disabilities are often poorly developed. This can have an effect on all other areas of development and on the quality of life of both the children themselves and their families. I believe my experience of working directly with children for the last 15 years can be a valuable contribution to the LUDI Network.
