Award Winning Journalist, Melanie Reid Shares About OT

When I completed High School, I spent a year Au Pairin in the UK and decided one day to go off to a career counsellor to gain some insight as to what I might study for a career upon completion of my year. The careers specialist suggested Occupational Therapy due to my interests in Art, Science and helping people. The idea made total sense and I have loved all the learning, training and work experience. What the career specialist did not mention is that most people do not know what Occupational Therapy or OT is.

Below is a video of an award winning journalist, Melanie Reid who also did not know what OT is, until she needed it herself.

Weddings and the Disabled


Those who know something about Occupational Therapy will often connect it to the disabled population. Many acknowledge that after being born with special needs or after a chronic illness or injury that Occupational Therapy might be indicated.

What happens when rehab. is complete and the disabled person wants to either get married or to attend a wedding? In our New Wedding Magazine, we plan to feature a very special column addressing many of these points. In the meantime, if you have a service related to Kosher weddings in Jerusalem that fits any of the following, please be in touch to advertise in our magazine.

  • Disabled Weddings
  • Wheelchair wedding dresses (Is there a difference? If you are a seamstress for wedding dresses, can you adapt it to suit a Kallah with special needs or a disability?)
  • Taxis for disabled so that they too can attend a family or friends wedding
  • Disabled accessible wedding venue - ie with a ramp wide enough for a wheelchair and with wheelchair accessible toilets. There must be both. Can you imagine attending a wedding and not being able to go to the bathroom if you need to? Or how about if the toilets are accessible but you can't get into the door.
  • Did you consider that the shops need to be accessible to the disabled too? How will a new Kallah who has any kind of disability go shopping for any of the important items for her wedding or new home? How will a disabled person who wishes to attend a wedding and wants to take a gift manage unless the shops are accessible. Is your store accessible to the disabled? If so, we want to hear from you and we want your advert in our new magazine.
Can you think of any other details that a disabled person needs to know either when they marry or when they attend a wedding? If so, we want to hear from you.

If you would like to sponsor an article written by a disabled Jew, please be in touch. Your kindness can help to give them a voice and an honest parnassa in dignity.
