Celebrating OT Month | OT Blogs
Happy OT Month! To kick off a month of celebrating the great work of occupational therapists, today I'd like to share some OT blogs that I think are pretty awesome. Please take a minute to visit these great blogs and support the hard work that is being done by these occupational therapists.
Mama OT | Christie is an OT and a mama. On her blog she shares tips and tricks for those who care for children. She often has fantastic guest posts from experts in child development.
Therapy Fun Zone | Tonya is a pediatric occupational therapist with experience working a variety of settings. Tonya has a wealth of information on her blog and website, including printables and a Therapy Fun Store.
OT Notes | Cheryl is one of the original OT bloggers and has even presented on social media at the AOTA Conference. She is currently on maternity leave from her blog, but she does post occasionally and there is a ton of great content in her archives.
Embrace Your Chaos | Dana blogs about encouraging child development, while dealing with the chaos of parenthood. She often shares cute crafts with an OT twist that she has completed with her daughter.
MAC&Toys | Meghan is a pediatric occupational therapist in New York City. On her blog, she shares toys, books, games, and apps that are therapist and children approved.
Miss Awesomeness | Karen is another pioneer in OT blogging. She began blogging as an OT student and continued to document her journey as she transitioned to practitioner. She is now taking another big step into independent consulting.
OT's with Apps | Looking for good apps to use in therapy? Look no further than Carol's blog. OT's with Apps shares reviews of iPad apps and accessories, and maintains an up to date list of apps by occupational performance.
