Interview with Jill Loftus OT from HonestOT Episode 45

On this episode of the Milestones podcast, I have a discussion and interview with Jill Loftus, MS, OTR/L.  She is an Occupational Therapist in the Denver, Colorado area who works with kids ages birth – 8 years old.  We discuss the pros and cons of Occupational Therapy home visits versus clinic visits with kids from a therapists’ perspective.

Sorry for any glitches in the audio! This was my first experience editing an interview so there are some places where things are off just a bit! And just some funny phone sounds coming through! Bear with me!
