All About Autism Podcast 052: Occupational Therapy and Autism


Episode 052Here is Episode 052 of the All About Autism Podcast. In this show, your hosts Dave and Heather Eaton are in Las Vegas, so Jason Producer Jason had to step in and pinch-hit quite a few times during the show. So, even though it’s atypical, Episode 052 is still packed with interesting and informational conversation about autism. For instance, today’s topic is Occupational Therapy and Autism, and our special guest is Gabe Byars, the Rehabilitation Team Leader at Woodland Park Rehabilitation and Care. Mr. Byars has worked with adults with autism prior to becoming an occupational therapist, but as an OT, he currently works with older adults. Mr. Byars is also a member of the Utah Occupational Therapy Association.
