Britt Collins, MS, OTR, graduated from Colorado State University with a master's degree in occupational therapy and has practiced in a variety of settings, including sensory-integration clinics, schools, homes, and pediatric hospitals. Jackie Linder Olson is a producer and writer whose son has Sensory Processing Disorder.
Jackie and Britt created an occupational-therapy DVD series for
parents, caregivers, and educators, to visually learn the basics of
occupational therapy and how to implement it into a child's daily
life. The DVDs include "OT in the Home," "OT in the School," "OT
for Children with Autism, Special Needs and Typical," and "Yoga for
Children with Special Needs." The duo cofounded Special Needs
United, with the goals of bringing occupational therapy to families
of children with special needs. Britt currently resides in Denver,
Colorado, and works at the STAR Center with Dr Lucy J. Miller.
Jackie resides in Los Angeles, California. Both can be found
touring the country, speaking about the benefits of occupational
therapy for children.
