What unique contributions do I have to offer?

I am an occupational therapist that has served for over 22 years, those in need due to disease or disability, from infancy to the elder adult through remediation and adaption for the purpose of regaining function and independence in order that they would achieve a quality of life through engagement in occupations at home, work, and community.

As an occupational therapist, I would like to contribute my part in the upholding of what the American With Disabilities Act intended & the American Occupational Therapy Association's (AOTA) goal, in the position of City Councilwoman, PLACE 6; to afford all citizens of Bedford, Texas  "that individuals, policymaker, populations, and society value and promote occupational therapy's practice of enabling people to improve their physical and mental health, secure well-being, and enjoy higher quality of life through preventing and overcoming obstacles to participation in the activities they value" (AOTA's Centennial Vision, AOTA.org, 2017).


Title III of the ADA provides persons with disabilities the

“full and equal enjoyment of goods, services, facilities, privileges,

advantages or accommodations of any place of public

accommodation” (ADA, 1990, [302(a)]). Compliance

with Title III of the ADA involves removing architectural

barriers when removal is readily achievable and providing

necessary auxiliary aids and services for persons to use in

order to enjoy the goods or services of an establishment. The

term readily achievable refers to an action that is easily carried

out without too much trouble or expense; however, its

exact interpretation is not clear. Reed (1992) suggested that

occupational therapy practitioners may be instrumental in

specifically defining readily achievable for individual situations,

based on their experience with modification and

adaptation.

disabilities. American Journal of Occupational Therapy, 46, 397–408.
