Debra continues to be actively supporting and promoting her CAPS designation.  Since August 2012, Young was invited to participate in the NAHB CAPS Board of Governors task group focusing on strengthening partnerships between CAPS remodelers and occupational therapists.  The task group recently sent out a survey to assist with identifying how the two groups can best work with each other for the benefit of homeowners.  Lastly, Debra was also invited by the Remodelers Council to be the occupational therapy representative to moderate the roundtable discussion “Partnering with Occupational Therapists on CAPS Remodeling Projects” at IBS 2013.
