The information contained in this blog is meant to be used as a helpful resource for Occupational Therapy practitioners looking for resources to support their therapy.
This is a personal weblog. The opinions (and they are only opinions) expressed here represent my own and not those of my employer (including but not limited to current, former or future employers). Nor of any universities or colleges I attend or have attended.
The information written here is meant to support occupational therapy practitioners. It is not meant to replace consultation or treatment provided by licensed occupational therapy practitioners. If you are a parent, caregiver, or teacher who is concerned about the functional development of a particular child, you are encouraged to seek out a complete evaluation from a licensed occupational therapy practitioner.
All therapy materials, websites, or applications mentioned in this blog are discussed as potential tools to aid in the development of functional skills. These tools are to be used as a part of, or in adjunct to, occupational therapy services and not in place of those services. It is up to the individual professional to determine if any of the mentioned therapy tools are applicable to the therapy process for each individual child. In other words, all content of this blog should be read and used at the discretion of the reader.
I blog and podcast because I love to help other therapists! I make therapy materials because I want to make your efforts easier. Feel free to use any of my ideas as long as you give credit to the OT School House and link back to OTSchoolhouse.com, a specific page on the OT Schoolhouse website, or an OT Schoolhouse social media page! Thanks! Please do not sell my ideas as your own.

I’ve always believed in transparency on the web and so I am disclosing that I’ve included certain products and links to those products on this site that Schoolhouse Education, LLC will earn an affiliate commission for any purchases you make. My goal with the blog is to help educate you on the resources and evidence that exist for occupational therapy practitioners, but please understand I am doing this as a for-profit business.
Various links on this website will direct you to another website which I have found to be helpful. You should assume that any links leading you to products or services are affiliate links that Schoolhouse Education, LLC will receive compensation from just to be safe. Having said that, there are thousands of products and services on the web that relate to occupational therapy. I only promote those products or services that I have investigated and truly feel deliver value to you. Examples would include the banners for Miss Jaime O.T., Medbridge Education, and Double Time Docs.
OTSchoolhouse.com is also a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.
Please note that I have not been given any free products, services or anything else by these companies in exchange for mentioning them on the site. The only consideration is in the form of affiliate commissions or compensation as an advisor for a few companies.
If you have any questions regarding the above, please do not hesitate to contact me by using the contact page.
