Top Ten Favorite Occupational Therapy links!

Back to school we go! Here at Smart Apps for Special Needs, we were discussing if we could create lists of our favorite links for various areas. Here are my top ten favorite OT sites to visit for treatment ideas and continuing ed. Many of them are useful for parents, too.
Do you have a favorite OT site not on this list? Share in the comments, or on our Facebook page! Let's see if we can make another great list.


1. PediaStaff Pinterest: The PediaStaff Pinterest boards gather links and information on a large range of sites of interest to OTs, PTs, SLPs and parents.

2. Glenda Anderson Pinterest (Assistive Technology): This great Pinterest collection gathers great links related to Assistive Technology and apps.

3. Lauren S Enders Pinterest (Assistive Technology): Lauren S. Enders is an SLP, and her Pinterest boards are a great place to go for more app information (after checking Smart Apps For Special Needs, of course!)

4. Mama OT Blog Facebook: I follow Mama OT for the great therapy activity suggestions and ideas.

5. Tools to Grow OT: This site has both free membership and the option to upgrade to a premium membership for thousands of activity and therapy resources.

6. Ark Therapeutic Pinterest: Ark Therapeutic makes oral motor materials, and their Pinterest board links to both materials and therapy resources.

7. Vital Links: More information about Therapeutic Listening.

8. Therapy Fun Zone: This site really is fun, with so many therapy activities to sort through that I'm sure I'll find the best activity for my therapy.

9. American Occupational Therapy Association: It's a must for OTs to follow this site.

10. Early Intervention Occupational Therapists Facebook Group: This Facebook group for intervention players is a must-follow for all the OTs who aren't yet members.

Check out these ten links, but be sure to share your favorite, too!
