Miss Mancy

I am a pediatric occupational therapist (OT) from Florida, whose greatest passion is working with children with Autism. I graduated from McGill University, in Montreal Canada in 2003. I began as an OT in adult rehab but quickly redirected my career to working with children.

I was always involved with handicapped children and children with learning disabilities who required a shadow at school or special attention to get them through a regular day, so when it was time to choose a career, my natural choice was to work with children with disabilities and fight for their inclusion in society. I had come across very few children with Autism when I first began my studies as an OT but as soon as I began interacting with them during my internships I was fascinated and humbled by them.
