Throughout the last 12 years, Kara Straub, Occupational Therapist has focused her clinical practice across several areas of pediatric care. Although the majority of her work has been with children on the Autism Spectrum, she also practiced for 5 years on a diagnostic team that focused on Complex Development and Behavioral Conditions at Sunny Hill Health Centre for Children in Vancouver, BC. Often confirmation of the diagnosis of DCD was supported by the tests she administered. During the next pediatric interest group, she’s happily agreed to come and speak on her experience with how the diagnosis of DCD is made, what recommendations support best practice, and briefly touch on the research she is familiar with.
