As I get ready to graduate from OT school, I wanted to start this blog so that I can write about my experiences as an OT student about to enter the workforce and the challenges that I might face. I also hope to talk about the process of taking the boards. Hopefully, this will develop into a good blog that will talk about the issues that OT students and new grads face. If you would like to contribute or know someone that would be interested, feel free to leave a comment.

A speech therapist was kind enough to agree to occasionally post things from an interdisciplinary point of view. I think that it can be beneficial to see things from another perspective

    Nice.
    I’m interested in seeing what comes up here.
    Occupational therapy in general interests me, I was seriously considering it as a major myself but decided the coursework would be too much for me 😦 Well, at least I’m happy where I am. 🙂

    I have always wondered about Occupational Therapy. I am currently very unhappy in my job and have been looking for an occupational therapist to help me with either hypnotizing me to be happy in my job or help me find a better career. Is OT covered by insurance? Good luck with your new blog, how come you aren’t using WordPress?

    Anonymous, yes, OT is covered by insurance. In the various insurances I’ve seen, they have covered a total of 60 visits per year. However, this includes PT and SLP as well, so if you’re getting a combination of the other services, the actual number of approved OT services will be less.

    Also, I encourage you to read the Wikipedia article on occupational therapy, which is linked on the right side of the blog page.
