Helpful Guide for Planning OT Treatments

June 28, 2007 at 2:33 pm 13 comments

Jenna from sent me the link to her website yesterday, and after having a quick look through the website, it looks like it can be a very useful source for treatment ideas. The site is obviously geared towards working with the pediatric population, so if anyone is in that field, you should definitely check it out.

The way the site works is you choose a skill you want a child to work on (i.e. tripod grasp, sequencing, cutting, intrinsic muscle development, etc.) followed by selecting what materials you have available in your clinic, house, or treatment setting. After selecting the materials, a list of activities (treatments) show up, and you can click each one for easy and understandable directions. The entire site is very straightforward, which I like a lot.

So check it out!

    Thanks for the kind words.

    New functionality was added to the site. You can now search for treatment ideas in 2 ways: searching by desired skills or searching by available materials. The site will match your selection with our available treatment plans.

    In addition, I’m requesting fellow users to send me new treatment plan ideas so others could benefit from it as well. Sharing our ideas is always a good thing 🙂

    I am an OT who just started working in a SNF. I am looking for a variety of ideas for treatment sessions–as opposed to the same ole, same ole (i.e. theraputty, ROM arc, graded pins, theraband, etc. etc.) I would like fun ideas, novel ideas, but ideas that are effective. Does anyone know of good resources for such?

    • 8. jb28  |  August 13, 2010 at 7:16 pm

      I am wondering the same as sandyg. I get tired of doing the same things with my patients, as I’m sure my pt’s get tired of it too. I look all over the net for interesting ideas but have come up empty handed.

      I find the ladies and some of the men like to do pot holders. You can make several and sew them together to make a bag or a heavy lap blanket. The men seem to like to match up different size nuts, bolts and screws.
