Spring has sprung!  Spring signifies new beginnings.  At OccupationalTherapy.com, we have many new and exciting things to share!

American Occupational Therapy Foundation

We have formed a partnership with the American Occupational Therapy Foundation (AOTF) to invest in our profession's future.  OccupationalTherapy.com is proud to support this great institution and its mission to advance the science of occupational therapy to support people's full participation in meaningful life activitiesWe will be donating to their scholarship fund on an annual basis.  

Advisory Board

We have assembled a well-respected group of OT professionals to serve on our newly created Advisory Board.  Each member will be giving us guidance on needed content or current research in their respective topic area.  By utilizing these experts, we hope to offer well-balanced, leading edge content to our members.  We applaud these practioners and are looking forward to a great collaborative process.

April is OT Month!

This year's theme is Occupational Therapy Transforming Lives, Building Independence.  In celebration, we are offering a 1-2 hour course free with the promo code OTMONTH15. Get started!

Weekly, I hear this message resonated by the practitioners that present on their topics of expertise and research on OccupationalTherapy.com.  Let's face it--we are a pretty passionate bunch.  Never is this in more evidence than at our yearly conference.  In two short weeks, many of us will gather to both renew our enthusiam for our chosen profession and reflect on where we have come and where we are headed.  If you are going to Nashville this year, my hope is that you will take a moment to appreciate all of the great things that we do.
