In hopes of best supporting our families during this chaotic time and throughout the rest of the year, we wanted to share some of our most used and most recommended resources. This list is not exhaustive, but helps outline different sources of information that include fun activities for children, explanations of different programs, and the reasoning behind their use. While it is not recommended that these materials and programs be used without the supervision of an occupational therapist, they can help provide support for our children to reach their full potential throughout a variety of daily skills. While we may use each program or technique differently with each child, the goal is to help each child feel successful across a variety of contexts and develop their skills as they grow!

While there is a lot of valuable information out there that is easily accessible (including books and online resources), our goal is to provide resources and services that remain up to date with recent research. If you are uncertain whether or not you have found a reliable source of information, please feel free to contact any of our therapists for a professional opinion, help navigating new resources, and finding out whether a resource could benefit your child!
