As part of this month of OT awareness, I would like to share some links to educational handouts provided by the AOTA. The American Occupational Therapy Association has an excellent section on their website for free consumer handouts. These handouts are an excellent resource for people who need further understanding of the role OT plays in various settings and with various populations (note: please keep in mind that some recommendations are based on US disability laws & regulations).
AOTA's "Tips For Living" handouts offer information to help people cope with a variety of health conditions in children and adults and explain how occupational therapy can help. The tip sheets can be downloaded and printed free of charge at www.aota.org/Consumers/Tips.aspx.
