The Sneaky Snacky Squirrel game is one of my favorite games for this time of year. Lots of fun with the cutest squirrel-tweezer tool, and encourages pincer grasp with the small, colorful acorns. β €

Found these super cute stickers at Target, and had to use them for some word and sentence practice!  I like to have the child tell me what they see when they look at the picture on the sticker and maybe tell me a story.  The usually enjoy copying  the words they tell me. 😊 Stickers also provide great practice with using those worker fingers. .

As OT’s in the school setting we often get placed at many different schools, in many different classroom/closets/hallways. I’ve been known to do wonders with a storage closet. πŸ˜‰ Even when sharing a classroom at one of my schools, I still make sure to spruce up my side of the room to make it feel homey on the days I’m there. πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

My job as an early intervention pediatric occupational therapist is heavy on parent/caregiver education. My therapy sessions are one hour a week in the child’s home. The rest of the week it’s up to the parents/caregivers to provide the opportunities for their child to play, learn, and grow with the activities and tools I’ve provided for them. 
For the littles with sensory processing needs, I almost always supply the family with a sensory diet. Sensory diets are planned specific activities throughout the child’s day that gives them the sensory input they need to engage, focus, and stay regulated throughout the day. Many times this includes the Wilbarger brushing protocol and joint compressions. Each child has a unique sensory system with a unique set of needs. I find sensory diets to be a very effective way to provide the little ones with a sensory enriched environment that helps them get and stay regulated.

Hello from some colorful turkeys! I love to include coloring tasks with younger kiddos, helping them develop strong fingers, stabilization of wrist/forearm, and hand-eye coordination. .

This fall tree craft has been a fun way to work on all sorts of fine motor skills! Working on scissor skills cutting out their hand print as the tree, and then we used a variety of tools to make different fall leaves. Q-tips, cotton balls on clothespins, paint brush, finger painting, dot markers, stamps, and leaf hole punches give many different fine motor opportunities to work on grasp, hand strength, sensory processsing, etc. The kids (and I πŸ˜‰) have had so much fun this week with this craft!

Correct letter formation is so rarely taught these days yet we're pushing kids to write so young. I love getting the pencil out of the hand and learning to form letters in multisensory media. What's your favorite way to teach handwriting?

Fine motor Pinterest find for the win! This week’s theme is Fall leaves, so this activity was perfect! I made trees with pipe cleaners and had the kiddos string beads and buttons onto the trees as colorful leaves! This worked on bilateral hand skills, fine motor skills, dexterity, pincer grasp, and visual motor skills. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‚

I take play seriously. 😎😎😎 I guess I'm lucky that I got a job that I love. I grab some toys, put them in a cart, and then I'm off to start a day of work and play with kids.

Being a #pediatricoccupationaltherapist has made me learn lessons, even from kids who cannot talk or cannot have eye contact with me. In fact, the more difficult the child or parent is to handle, the more lessons there are for me to learn.

This job never runs out of surprises (even if on some days pee and poop are the surprises πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). There's so much room for growth and one workday keeps getting me excited for the next one πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜„ #worldoccupationaltherapyday

"Squeeze and tweeze" formerly know as "Wok n Roll" is one of my all time favorite fine motor activities. This game allows you to work on sustained grasp control, color coordination, seated balance, crossing midline and sometimes a bonus of frustration tolerance. .

8 years and thousands of hours of studying, volunteering, and interning AND I'm finally in my dream job as a pediatric home health occupational therapist. I got thrown every curve ball treating on my own this week and I stepped up to the plate and hit it home... well I'd like to think I made it to first base atleast. I received my first real pay check!! Yes, I'm at home on a Saturday night tying up odds and ends at work while doing laundry. Yes, I eat tuna on a daily basis - cheap, easy to prepare, and easy to eat as a sandwich when traveling from home to home. Yes, I work long hours. Yes, I put in plenty more hours on paperwork and researching to help my clients outside of my work week. AND I could not be happier NOR would I trade it for anything else! Nothing can beat the feeling of seeing a kid complete something for the first time or watching a parent help their child succeed and develop based on strategies you taught them. Nothing can beat the smiles and affection from the adorable kids and families. Bring on the clients and a more full caseload! Let's go! I'm ready to make a positive impact on more families' lives!

Also - if you are like me and like paper planners... spend the $30 on a @passionplanner. I promise you it's worth every penny. β€’

Space week writing! Every week the kids never let me down with their super creative and fun ideas and handwriting! I love coming up with themes for the week and completing other space activities that they can think about and get ideas from for their writing! β˜ΊοΈβœπŸ»πŸŒŒπŸ’«
When you're always on a go, traveling between schools and to the clinic, you gotta keep some snack in your car (hoping they don't melt ) and at the clinic to satisfy your hunger. @cybelesfreetoeat #vanssimplydelicous #pbandjelly #bars #peanutbutter #sandwiches #chocolatechipcookies #glutenfree #life #travel #ot #therapist #pediatricoccupationaltherapist
For Space Week we made constellations out of mini marshmallows and toothpicks! ✨ this worked on a lot of great skills! We used pincer grasp to manipulate the marshmallows and toothpicks, bilateral hand skills to connect them
together, visual tracking to match the connect the dot picture to the creation, motor planning, tactile play, and following multi step directions. Such a fun project! πŸ’«πŸŒŒ

Because Life is like a game of Snakes and Ladders...you work hard to climb up the ladder don't mean you won't come sliding now at any point in time. You got to watch out for the snakes and start working up the ladder. The single one important thing to remember: you're never at the end until you're at the end. #life #truth #pediatricot #pedsot #pediatricoccupationaltherapy #pediatricoccupationaltherapist #snakesandladders #bewarethesnakes #itaintovertillitsover
Space Week playdough mats! πŸŒŸπŸŒπŸŒ˜β˜„οΈπŸš€
I love having my students work with playdough for many reason! It's a great sensory exploration activity when they squish and mold it (tactile and proprioceptive). You can also add essential oils or spices to add an additional sensory component. It's also a great fine motor and bilateral coordination activity when pinching, rolling, creating shapes, using cookie cutters in the playdough, cutting it with scissors. It also helps to strengthen the hands! βœ‹πŸ»πŸ˜„

How many times do you find random items in your pocket after a long day of back-to-back therapy? You’re not alone, check out β€œWhat’s in the OT’s Pocket?” on the blog to see the funny items my pockets end up holding. Add the hashtag #whatsintheOTspocket to your post so others can see!

This week in OT..... Space Week! πŸŒŸπŸŒπŸŒ˜β˜„οΈπŸš€ Here'a my space themed sensory bin. Just made with dry beans, got some space clipart from #teacherspayteachers, laminated them, and hid them in the sensory bin! The kiddos search for the pictures and can make their own Space scene!

A little support can go a long way. Working on postural endurance, upper extremity endurance, grasp and fine motor precision. Coloring on a vertical surface encourages correct wrist placement! .

A parent said to me today "you know you probably never hear this out loud, and I think that's when it matters most". A compliment, a super nice one, that made me feel that all of my hard work is paying off. Be nice, tell someone how they make you feel, give praise, you will never know how much it means until it escapes your lips and reaches their ears. πŸ—£πŸ‘‚πŸ»We all deserve a little lift, pass it on and make someone's day!!! I felt great after that, doing my run and yoga on the rooftop, getting GROOVY and feeling fine. β˜ΊοΈπŸ™πŸΌ#BeKind #BeHonest #MakeSomeonesDay #BeHappy #YogaEveryDamnDay #YogaGirlChallenge @yoga_girl #DayTwentyOne #ThoseHammies #GreatYoga #RooftopYoga #PediatricOccupationalTherapist
