Gabriella is a pediatric OT in Queens, NY, a BU alum, and an advocate for greater awareness and inclusion of culturally responsive approaches in OT education programs. She shares her experiences working with Spanish speaking populations in school environments and shines a light on the lack of access Spanish speaking populations face. She shares practical advice on how practitioners can close this gap, and how they can cultivate a culturally responsive approach in their work, as well as other ways OTs (or anyone receiving healthcare services) can advocate for greater diversity in and representation in health services fields.
