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.
