There have been some really interesting blogs, which I have been keeping an eye on lately. These blogs are all related to occupational therapy and cover some really important and interesting topics.
The first blog is
This blog is by Karen who is an occupational therapist and works in California. There is one blog that I found most interesting and that is the “typing skills for children in OT”. She has some really interesting and creative ideas check it out: http://otstudents.blogspot.co.nz/2012/05/typing-skills-for-children-in-ot.html
Another blog which I had great interest in is: http://otswithapps.wordpress.com/2012/03/24/123-color-hd-talking-coloring-book-just-another-coloring-book-app-take-a-closer-look/
This blog looks at different apps for the iPad which are apporiate and worth while for children. It is great to have someone reviewing these apps and providing knowledge on them.
The next blog belongs to a classmate of mine, Amanda. http://amandasparticipationinoccupationone.blogspot.co.nz/
She has looked at wii fit games that can be used for people that experience TBI
This next blog is by Loren Shalaes who is a pediatric OT http://pediatricot.blogspot.co.nz/2012/05/who-needs-sensory-integration-therapy.html
Her blog on “when a child cant sit still” is very interesting.
Finally the last blog that intrigued me was Hannah’s:
She covered a really interesting video about a tetraplegic woman who used thought to control a robotic arm.I commented on this:
