Our Favourite Blogs and Websites

Here at OT for Kids we love social media and love that so many OTs get involved with social media, check out our Social Media

 

For many paediatric therapists working in isolation or without a team, connecting with other OTs, seeing what parents like and don’t like and being up to date with the most recent evidence based practice is crucially important. Social media makes that so much easier!

We thought we would provide you with our top websites and blogs so you can go and check them out too. Remember though, never use online information as a substitute for medical advice and always seek the advice of a qualified therapist if your child is struggling with their occupational performance.

Your Therapy Source is a website and blog that gives away and sells therapy resources. I honestly don’t know where I’d be without their wonderful illustrated guide to help children learn to get dressed, it is ace!

A great blog and website by an OT Colleen. Colleen’s sisters and her collate and share all kinds of great resources about visual perception, fine motor, scissor skills and handwriting and much more, all beautifully presented.

I’m a great believer in thinking critically and The Anonymous OT does exactly that. Considered discussion about different therapy related topics, including one of my favourite posts ever about handwriting and pencil grips.

Cara an OT with a wonderfully diverse skill set blogs about her practice and life with her wonderful family. She writes books about OT, provides training courses and is endorsed by the one and only Temple Grandin.

A brilliant occupational therapy blog with tips and tricks for those that work with or care for children.

A Facebook page sharing occupational therapy related information and topics of interest.

  • What people say about us...

    OT for Kids have been a great help in aiding my son Jake with coping with his dyspraxia both at home and in school. They came out to our house and completed the assessment at home.

    The assessment and report proved beneficial in our discussions with Jake's school and we are very pleased with the outcome the report has helped us achieve.
    Jackie, parent.
    At our school, there are many children who have difficulty forming letters correctly, concentrate or perform well in P.E, which can impact greatly on their learning. With the support and OT Groups available from OT for Kids, these children have made great progress and are now at a level which is not so concerning. As a teacher and SENCO, I thoroughly enjoyed working (and learning) from the Occupational Therapist.

    As a case manager, I regularly deal with many private companies. I found OT for Kids to be highly professional, reliable and provide me with flexible appointments that suited both me and my clients. The OT completed a comprehensive assessment and report, which was not only clear, concise and an accurate reflection of the difficulties, but it was returned to me quickly.
