Occupational Therapy Award Winner - Kathy Sparrow
Ms. Kathy Sparrow, OT
Since graduation Kathy has been an Occupational Therapist at Grandview Children's Centre in the Durham Region. As a student Kathy was fortunate to have had amazing preceptors when on clinical placements and wanted to pay this forward to future student occupational therapists. Kathy has supervised 14 OT students in her 15 years of practice. While she was the Occupational Therapy Discipline Lead at Grandview Kids she saw a need to develop a student package for clinicians and students to use as a resource which was well received by her colleagues. Supervising Student Occupational Therapists has allowed Kathy to regularly reflect on her own practice, clinically reason out loud, and share in her excitement when children and families reach their goals.
