• Welcome! 

     

    I am Maria Dyzenhaus, one of the Occupational Therapists in the First Steps Early Childhood preschool program. 

     

    In the school setting, Occupational Therapists:

    • Support academic achievement and social participation by promoting occupation within all school routines, including recess, classroom, and cafeteria time.
    • They help children fulfill their role as students and prepare them for college, career, and community integration.
