Jackson suffered a stroke in 2011 that paralyzed much of the left side of his body. Jackson’s story of determination and recovery has been a source of inspiration for many, including U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk, who became pen-pals with the Oakwood boy following his own January 2012 stroke. (AP Photo/M. Spencer Green)

In this episode, David Brancaccio visits Illinois to chat with an occupational therapist about the skills that her line of work requires.
