"One thing all jobs in occupational therapy have in common is a focus on people’s abilities, not disabilities. This philosophy is at the core of my teaching style. Learners are unique with individual needs and talents. For effective teaching to occur, one must acknowledge the individuality of learners and create a non-threatening environment where learner contributions are valued." — Mari Jo Ulrich
