MAOT Annual Conference Friday, November 3, 2023

Four Points Sheraton, Norwood MA

This year MAOT is collaborating with the Rhode Island Occupational Therapy Association (RIOTA) for our conference.  

We are looking forward to this partnership to expand continuing education opportunities for occupational therapy practitioners in both states.

Keynote Speakers:  Tim O’Donnell and Tod O’Donnell

The House We Lived In-A decade in the making, a young filmmaker confronts addiction, family, and memory as he chronicles his father‘s journey to recover lost memories following a traumatic brain injury. Using experimental approaches with projected installations he attempts to find those missing memories in hopes of finding the dad he used to know. As memories return in the form of dreams the family struggles with acceptance of this new version of their father.

Tim O’Donnell (Director) is an Emmy-nominated and award-winning documentary filmmaker. His work has appeared on ESPN, NBC, PBS, OutsideTV, CNN Films, Uninterrupted and events around the world.  His film Not a War Story opened at #1 for all iTunes Documentaries and premiered at the Academy of Motion Pictures. His follow up feature Life Without Basketball opened to a sold-out audience at DOC NYC and is being distributed by Gravitas Ventures. HBO’s Mary Carillo said of Tim’s work, “The story is so beautiful, so lovingly told and so incredibly moving.”

Tod O’Donnell (Subject) is a brain injury survivor and advocate. He is the subject of the award-winning documentary film “The House We Lived In” as well as the inspiring short ESPN film “No Quit”. Tod has spoken at Harvard Medical School, Spaulding Rehab, Supportive Living Inc, Krempels Center, ESPN and many more creating positive conversation surrounding brain injuries.
