If your clinic doesn’t subscribe to Fusion’s Home Education Platform add-on, you may find yourself struggling to put together the activities and home program resources your patients need to be successful.
Fortunately, there are a lot of great pediatric resources for OTs (and SLPs too!) out there if you know where to find them. To make it easier, I made a list of the best websites with free resources for pediatric occupational therapists.
These sites offer a range of resources from flashcards to games to coloring sheets and more. Tell me in the comments if you know of any additional sites I should add to the list!
Also, make sure you download the free resources at the end of this post!
1. Tools to Grow
Tools to Grow has tons of activities for bilateral coordination, handwriting, visual perception, sensory processing, self-care and more.
You’ll have to sign up for a free account to access their free resources. You can click the “Sign Up For Free Access” button beneath any of the activities to get started.
After you sign up it will take you to a form that asks for your credit card info. Don’t worry, you can skip that!
Just go back to the Free Resources page and you’ll see that now all the resources have a “Download PDF” button.
Your Therapy Source has hundreds of free activities, handouts and information sheets along with some video activity ideas and two self-calming videos.
If that’s not enough, they offer even more pediatric therapy activities here.
3. Therapy Fun Zone
Therapy Fun Zone has a lot of great games and other activities to help you shake up your therapy sessions. The site is run by Tonya Cooley, an OTR who helps therapists keep their kiddos engaged during sessions by providing therapy activities that make treatment fun.
Do2learn thousands(!) of social skills and behavioral regulation resources. They’ve got activities, learning songs, games, communication cards, and more.
5. Pediatric Occupational Therapy Tips
Pediatric Occupational Therapy Tips is run by Dr. Anne Zachry, an OT from Tennessee. She regularly posts activities, exercises, worksheets, and charts for pediatric therapists. You can find her most popular pediatric occupational therapy resources here.
6. DLTK’s Crafts for Kids
DLTK isn’t specifically therapy-related, but it has a ton of great activities that you can use in your sessions. These memory cards are a great example. They offer a bunch of different themes so you can print a deck for each season, holiday, etc.
7. Twisty Noodle
Twisty Noodle is another one that isn’t specifically therapy-related, but they provide a lot of free coloring pages, worksheets, and mini books in a variety of categories. You can even customize the font and text.
