Hina Mahmood’s Virtual Office

Welcome DSRF families! I am excited to welcome you to my virtual office where I hope we can collaborate as a team to provide the best possible care and support for your loved one with Down Syndrome. As an occupational therapist my job is to support individuals across their life span in achieving independence in daily activities that are meaningful for them, all while putting the ‘fun’ in functional!
