Our story started way back when a little girl named Ziba would play with her dolls. Her play themes always intrigued her parents, as she would always pretend (through symbolic play) that her dolls were hurt and she would take care of them by bandaging their eyes because they were blind, or make a wheelchair out of cardboard boxes because they could not walk. At the young age of 7, Ziba had no idea what a therapist was, so when people would ask her what she wanted to be when she “grew up” she would say, “A nurse, so I can take care of people who can’t see or walk.”
