Occupational therapists, how do we love thee? Let us count the ways (with these gifs):

OTs are a rare breed.

Not only are they natural caregivers...

...but being a great OT requires someone with natural creativity…

...and a talent for puzzle-solving.

Many occupational therapists have a taste for adventure.

So it’s a good thing occupational therapists can work pretty much anywhere.

Plus, OTs can work in a variety of settings, from helping kids be kids in schools…

...to helping seniors stay up and moving in their homes…

...to collaborating with other providers in rehabilitation centers.

Finding time to do paperwork between patients can be tough.

But hopefully you take a few precious moments for self care.

Occasionally, you might have a day that makes you want to head home before you’ve even had your morning coffee.

Some patients might not cooperate.

And others are perpetually late.

And you may have to battle it out with insurance payers who aren’t covering necessary services.

And that can make it tough to remain sunny and upbeat at times.

And yet, when you see a patient achieve the unbelievable, it makes all the headache worth it.

So, it makes sense that your profession is one of the most rewarding around.

Occupational therapists, you’re an inspiring bunch.

And that’s why, in honor of OT Month, we wanted to say “thanks” to all you amazing OTs.

    5 Fun Ways to Celebrate OT Month—and Maybe Win a T-Shirt!

    Since its inaugural launch in April of 1980, Occupational Therapy Month has given OTs a well-deserved cause to celebrate their profession. And this year, the AOTA has given up its tradition of selecting a celebratory theme to make way for an exciting new message. They’ve developed a branded concept that truly encompasses—and honors—what it means to be an OT: “Occupational Therapy: Living Life To Its Fullest®.” Now, we’re already two weeks into April—my, how time flies!—so you …

    What We're Reading Right Now

    Take a stroll through WebPT headquarters, and you’ll see dozens of diagrams on whiteboards, brainstorming sessions in progress, smiling faces, Nerf darts, and a whole lot of hard workers. But, if you look a little closer, you’ll notice books—tons of books. They’re displayed on shelves, stacked on desks, and even organized into mini departmental libraries. Heck, we even have an internal Google+ page where teams can leave book reviews. That’s because here at WebPT, we encourage everyone …

    How to Get More New Patients Without Spending a Dime

    When you’re trying to get more of the stuff you need, sometimes all you have to do is ask . But shy of affecting a Dickensian persona and approaching referral sources with your hat in hand, you may not know what sort of strategy you should employ to get more patients into your clinic. The fact is, word-of-mouth advertising has been proven to boost marketing effectiveness by up to 54%. The message is clear: word-of-mouth is must …

    Spooky, Scary, or Just Plain Fun: Halloween Traditions Across Our Community

    I don’t know about you, but I’ve always loved Halloween. Sure, I’ve been a cat more times than I can count—not the most original or frightening costume, to be certain—but there’s just something exhilarating about donning a mask (or face makeup in my case) and exploring the things that go bump in the night. After all, the ancient Celts—who celebrated Samhain, what The History Channel credits as the “ancient origins of Halloween”—believed that on October 31, “the …

    6 Ways to Celebrate OT Month

    April is Occupational Therapy Month —and that means it’s time to bust out the confetti and celebrate!

But, it’s a great opportunity to showcase this amazing profession on a bigger stage. That means raising awareness about OT in general and showing appreciation for all the hard-working therapists who are helping patients become as independent as possible in their daily lives. …

    Dialogue after Discharge: The Importance of Post-Treatment Follow-Up

    Long-distance relationships are tough. Between juggling the hectic day-to-day and maintaining connections with all the other people in your life, it can be challenging to devote time to someone who resides outside your immediate geographic vicinity. Fortunately, as technology progresses, it’s helping bridge the gap between people and their faraway loved ones. Thanks to technological advances like text messaging, email, video chat, and social media, it’s easier than ever for those separated by land and sea to …
