My name is Emily Bettis. I am a pediatric occupational therapist (OT) and a busy mom. I have been working with children from birth to age 5 since 2008 and became a mom myself in 2013.
As a pediatric OT, I have worked with children and families of all abilities and backgrounds. I have experience with children with Autism ADD/ADHD, chromosomal abnormailities, cerebral palsy, substance exposure, prematurity, and more.
Working as an OT, I have gained valuable insight and knowledge that helped prepare me for motherhood. The early stages of a child’s development are the most critical, and can sometimes be the most challenging. Through Hey Mommies, I hope to share some of my knowledge, tips, tricks, and insight to surviving everyday life as a busy mom.
Posts on Hey Mommies are geared toward typically developing children, but in many instances, can also be applied to children with delays or disabilities.
