    Really loved this. It’s such an interesting topic. I plan on going back and watching it again.

  2. Mary Newell OTR/L,CHT

    The course althought short was very up to date and comprehensive

  3. Cory Vatnsdal OTR/L

    The course was wonderful. I re-learned so much that I forgot over the years and a therapist sometimes needs to step back and break down the hand like this, much more than in daily practice. I revisited my roots in Occupational Therapy. Thank you.
