My name is Janet Husbands. I have been an Occupational Therapist in the Minneapolis Public Schools for the past 19 years.  I work with students in Kindergarten - 5th grade in the Developmental Cognitive Disabilities (DCD) Program at Sheridan.  I work with students on improving their fine motor and sensory processing skills as they relate to their school day and tasks.   Some of the skills we work on include: pre-writing, writing, classroom tool use, dressing, mealtime skills, focusing, and calming.  I try to incorporate as many fun activities as possible to work on these skill areas!

In my free time I like to spend time with my family, including two teenage sons.  I also enjoy travel, being outside, 80’s music, and movies! 

I am at Sheridan on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and every other Friday.  Please feel free to contact me at:
