We learnt (rather absorbed) the basics of the philosophy underlying Vona du Toit’s thinking from our first year in 1965; my sense of self as a growing person and particularly as an Occupational Therapist has since that time been indivisible from my understanding and application of Creative ability and the VdTMoCA. Being a pragmatist at heart I’m passionate about the VdTMoCA because it genuinely WORKS. This model enables us, as OTs and OT teachers but also as partners, parents and community members, to contribute so much to so many and varied persons lives and situations – what can be more worthwhile than that?
