Your Therapy Source is a great resource for the school based OT
My OT Go-Tos: AOTA (love those sheets, great way to learn about different settings), Willard and Spackman’s Occupational Therapy Books, Podcasts (OT4Lyfe &amp; OT After Dark are my faves), and finally, my Dad! He’s been an OT for over 30 years and he is a great resource
The AOTA website, the OT practice Framework 3rd Ed., “Occupation-Based Activity Analysis, 2nd Ed.” by Heather Thomas, peer reviewed journals...
I have been a Seniors Flourish member and especially appreciate the educational videos as they cover a variety of topics. I love listening to OT podcasts especially OT4lyfe. I love Sarah’s passion and enthusiasm for OT and have really enjoyed the different guests and the topics they bring which have been very educational.
I work in Pediatrics and am a huge fan of the Lite Brite. I had one growing up and I love how excited kids get when using it. In addition it is great to work on visual motor skills, fine motor skills, executive functioning with following directions, and patience as I have kids wait until they finish their design before they turn it on.
My go to OT resources are podcasts. I have gained so much insight and knowledge from listening from other practitioners in our field. Plus, there are a bunch about all different areas in occupational therapy.
