(February) VALE Lyn Lennox
It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Lyn Lennox AM on 25 January 2017. Lyn was an Honorary Life member of Occupational Therapy Australia and a recipient of the Member of the Order of Australia (AM June 2013) for her significant service to occupational therapy, particularly through support to children with developmental and learning difficulties.
Lyn completed the Diploma of Occupational Therapy in 1954 and her Master of Science Degree in 1986 from Boston University, USA.
Lyn had a long and successful career in occupational therapy, working with children and young people with learning difficulties, intellectual and physical difficulties, behaviour problems and a variety of eccentricities.
Her tireless work and achievements to improve care and interventions for children and young adults with disabilities, and her commitment to the profession and the Association is meritorious.
