dc.description.abstractEmeritus Professor Sylvia Rodger made a significant contribution to the occupational therapy profession on the local, national and international stage. Starting her career in 1981, she was a clinician working with children with a variety of issues (including Developmental Coordination Disorder [DCD], Autism Spectrum Disorders [ASD], developmental delay to name a few) and their families, a leading occupational therapy educator, and a researcher who has been instrumental in establishing a national research centre for individuals living with ASD. In addition, Emeritus Professor Rodger demonstrated expertise in higher education teaching, learning and leadership, as well as mentoring and assisting the careers of early academics, educators, researchers and the future generation of occupational therapists. Emeritus Professor Rodger's work has been recognised by Occupational Therapy Australia, the American Occupational Therapy Association, the Australian higher education sector, and peak research funding organisations. In this article we will present a broad overview of Emeritus Professor Rodger's career and accomplishments, highlighting her contributions to the occupational therapy profession both nationally and internationally.
