OTdirect is an independent site for Occupational Therapists, OT Assistants and OT students, produced by OTs in their spare time. It aims to provide not only links to useful resources on the web, but study notes, practice updates and training listings. We value any feedback. Please mail us your own articles, training notes, etc., or volunteer to edit part of the site -- this site will only work well if it is a shared effort.
This site has been designed for increased accessibility. Please let us know if you have any problems.
