The OT School House Podcast and website are designed and put together for occupational therapists, by occupational therapists. Every day, I strive to make the OT School House a place where therapists can come to feel welcomed, challenged and validated. In a setting where we do not always have someone to bounce ideas off of, I know we can all benefit from sharing and responding to our OT community.
