It’s no surprise that I’m a huge advocate of Occupation Based Practice. One thing I love more than anything is coming across private practice and projects who are utilising OBP in new and exciting ways! This episodes guest is doing exactly that. Aimee Blacker runs a not for profit called Surfing the Spectrum that provides surfing as an intervention to support kids with autism as well as their families.
Surfing the Spectrum aims to provide therapeutic surfing to the east coast of Australia. We discuss exactly what that is and what the benefits are for the kids. One thing I always find with occupation based practice is how incredibly holistic it is naturally. What makes it even better is seeing a therapist incorporate something they’re really passionate about into their business. What a beautiful world.
