Teepa Snow, MS, OTR/L, FAOTA
Teepa Snow is an advocate for those living with dementia and has made it her personal mission to help families and professionals better understand how it feels to be living with such challenges and seeks to change and improve life for everyone involved. Her practice has included everything from neuro-intensive care units in tertiary hospitals to in-home end-of-life care in rural parts of North Carolina. She has taught at medical schools and post-doctoral programs, health professional programs, colleges and universities, community colleges, and community centers. She led educational and training efforts as the Educational Director of the Eastern NC Chapter of the Alzheimer's Association for many years and was a major contributor and author of the in-depth hands on training delivered to family members and staff that led to the production of the DVD Accepting the Challenge: Providing the Best Care for People with Dementia, an internationally recognized resource for training and understanding dementia. As one of America's leading educators on dementia, Teepa has developed a dementia care philosophy reflective of her education, work experience, medical research, and first hand caregiving experiences. She is a graduate of Duke University, and received her MS degree from the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. As an Occupational Therapist with over 30 years of experience in geriatrics, she has worked as the OT Director in a head injury facility, a clinical specialist in geriatrics for a Veteran's Administration Medical Center, and a Restorative Care Coordinator for a long term care facility. Her hands on caregiving experiences include providing direct care in home health, assisted living, long term care, and rehabilitation settings. Teepa also served as the Director of Education and Lead Trainer for the Eastern N.C.

She has served as an interdisciplinary team member and helped develop and conduct clinical research with leading researchers in dementia and geriatric care. Through opportunities she has had, she has learned from people living with various forms of dementia including: head injuries, stroke, autism, down syndrome, and many other neurological and chronic health conditions. Teepa has become committed to building a program of support and care that provides a just right match between what the person needs and is able to do, and the environment and care partnering that can provide it. This wealth of experience and knowledge led to her development of a Positive Approach to Care for those living with dementia or other brain changes. Teepa's teaching style integrates facts about the brain and what happens to someone when doing, thinking, reasoning or processing becomes different or difficult.

Stephen Page, PhD, MS, OTR/L, FAHA, FACRM, FAOTA
Dr. Page’s team develops and tests approaches that increase function and independence after stroke and other neurologic diseases. He has held uninterrupted extramural funding to support his rehabilitative trials for over 15 years, and has produced many "firsts" in neurorehabilitation, developing and showing efficacy of mental practice, portable robotics, modified constraint-induced therapy, functional electrical stimulation, brain stimulation in moderately impaired individuals, and several other innovative strategies in people with acquired brain injuries. This includes eight NIH grants and five grants from the American Heart Association, as well as funding from multiple private organizations and subcontracts. He has also published well over 100 peer-reviewed articles, and has served as guest issue editor for 14 special issues of rehabilitative and neurological journals since 2001, including The Archives of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, The American Journal of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, and The Journal of Head Trauma Rehabilitation. He is a fellow of the American Heart Association, The American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, and The American Occupational Therapy Association, and a standing panel member on NIH's Function, Integration, and Rehabilitation Sciences Panel. While "translation" is a common buzzword in academic circles, very few clinician scientists make efforts to actually speak regularly with nonscientist audiences (such as clinicians and patients) about their findings. To accomplish such translation, Dr. Page has organized and chaired eight regional, national, and international neurorehabilitation conferences, co-chaired the 2003 and 2004 international, joint meetings of the American Society of Neurorehabilitation / the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine and served on the Board of Directors for these organizations. Locally, he created and co-directed the Ohio Neurorehabilitation Academy, which brings in national speakers to provide all-day, "hands-on" neurorehabilitation education to rehabilitation clinicians from across his region. He also takes great joy in providing lunch and learns to area clinicians, and outside of his region co-develops and co-implements the field's only stroke certification for physical and occupational therapists. This seminar-based program–called the "Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist" (CSRS)–is another way that he translates scientific information to clinicians. You can learn more about this opportunity at www.strokecertification.com. Finally, he has mentored well over 60 students, with almost all of them at least publishing a paper and/or presenting the results of their work at a professional meeting. His mentees have won multiple awards for their work, including four "Outstanding Poster" Awards in the past two years alone at the annual international meeting of the American Congress of Rehabilitation Medicine, and four capstone awards, won by his mentees in engineering over the past four consecutive years. In 2008 Dr. Page was co-awarded the "Outstanding Mentor" Award from Xavier University.

Her work radiates her passion about the benefits of occupational therapy as well as the capacity for development and potentiality in all children with developmental disabilities. Dr. Spitzer received her B.A. in psychology from Claremont McKenna College, where she conducted research on video modeling for play with children with autism and assisted in behavioral interventions. She received both her M.A. in occupational therapy and her Ph.D. in occupational science from the University of Southern California. Her doctoral research focused on understanding individual meaning in activities for children with autism. This research and training provided the foundation for her focus on using personal occupational meaning as the cornerstone for effective intervention. Dr. Spitzer’s professional endeavors have been driven by her desire to make research more accessible and relevant to practice. Currently, she is co-editing the 4th edition of the text, Autism: A Comprehensive Occupational Therapy Approach (published by the American Occupational Therapy Association).
