Hello, my name is Ina. I’m a pediatric occupational therapist, and I like to share.
That’s basically the premise of this blog, PediatricOT.info. I am passionate about occupational therapy and have been working as a pediatric OT since 2000. I love it when I find a great website or resource, or when I stumble upon an awesome treatment idea, I want to immediately share it with other therapists. Or when my colleagues share a really helpful resource with me, and in turn I want to share it again with even more people.
At the same time, I’ve loved blogging since 2002, when the word “blog” wasn’t even a mainstream word yet. I’ve had plans to create this blog for many years, and I am finally going for it and making it into a reality.
I am hoping that PediatricOT.info will become a great resource where pediatric OTs can go to find out about the latest OT-related news, get some inspiration and ideas for treatment, brush up on the latest research and evidence, and share their own thoughts and ideas with other OTs.
Occupational therapy is an ever changing and growing profession, and I think we should always be growing and learning along with it. Even within a specialized field such as pediatrics, there are so many subspecialties, such as sensory integration, feeding, and school-based practice. There is so much to learn as a pediatric OT, we could never get bored!
Please subscribe to the blog, and visit often to chime in with your own comments and ideas. I’d really love to hear from you.
