best of occupational therapy

It’s Wednesday and that means I’ve got a brand new BOOT today. And this BOOT is all about OT practitioners who have written books.

Ovis Has Trouble

Kelly Beins has written 2 books about a sheep named Ovis: Ovis Has Trouble with School and Ovis Has Trouble with Eating.

Healing Your Life Through Activity

Shoshanah Shear wrote this book – Healing Your Life Through Activity: An Occupational Therapist’s Story– to showcase the development and journey of occupational therapy as a practice area.

Ultimate Study Guide

Looking for a great resource to help you study? Marissa Cubillos has you covered with The Ultimate Study Guide for the Occupational Therapist.

The Recycling Therapist

With teletherapy on the rise, occupational therapy practitioners have found themselves having to get super creative in what they use during therapy sessions. Barbara A. Smith has a great book titled The Recycling Occupational Therapist: Hundreds of Simple Therapy Materials You Can Make to help get those creative juices going.

OT Toolkit

And of course, I couldn’t not mention this book by Cheryl A. Hall titled Occupational Therapy Toolkit: Patient Handouts and Treatment Guides. It is one of the most recommended resources out there for OT practitioners working with adults.

Football is Back!

Most of my weekend and week has been spent cooped up inside due to the smoke and unhealthy air quality all over the west coast currently. But fortunately for me, that meant plenty of time to watch football now that the season has officially started. Too bad my Niners started the season with a loss; fingers crossed we can turn it around.

This week, I released a super fun and informative podcast episode with Amirra Johnson from @marvelousmirracles.ot. We chatted all about our favorite practice area early intervention and what it looks like getting into this area as a new grad.
