I am going to try to do a post every Friday to share highlights from the week that I think are worth checking out. Here's my roundup for this first week of 2012:
~The blogging world is full of fresh starts and New Year resolutions. Stephanie Bruno, MS, CCC-SLP has a high-five list for the workplace and Your Therapy Source has a list of suggested goals for 2012.
~The Occupational Therapy Association of California has started OT Leaders that Shine, as a public awareness initiative to support OTAC's Vision Statement and AOTA's Centennial Vision by encouraging OTs to connect and share volunteer experiences on their blog.
~Readers of Jen's OT for Kids can receive 50% off Zaner-Bloser Fonts Online Plus.
~I received a postcard in the mail this week about early
identification of neuromuscular disorders. Portions of the website appear to be under construction, but it looks promising.
~The December 19th issue of OT Practice featured an article Introducing...the Journal Club Toolkit by William E. Janes and Lizabeth Metzger. The Journal Club Toolkit described in the article is now available on AOTA's website.
~As an Iowa native, I always keep an eye on the caucus news. I was especially impressed with nine year old Sam Wessels, an individual with autism, questioning each candidate about their position on helping children with special needs.
~Thanks to Your Therapy Source for finding these free webinars on Sensory Integration. The next one will take place on January 12.
Have a great weekend!
