The Drive Thru Menus Exercise Programs were developed by the author and speaker, Tere Bowen-Irish OTR/L. Tere is an occupational therapist, with over 27 years of experience in pediatrics and mental health. These programs are intended to provide engaging and meaningful exercises in situations where time is limited, in much the same way that drive thru restaurants provide food for people in a hurry. Each category of exercise consists of 10 exercises, all easy to follow, and simple to perform. The DVD & Manual explain the purpose of the exercise, how to prepare, and how to do the exercise with possible variations.
