Buffalo Occupational Therapy [BOT] Resources for students and practitioners is the #1 treatment ideas and documentation resource for OT-performed treatments and practice both online and in-person! Can’t come to open labs at the studio? That’s okay! Head to our online BOT Portal where you will find ‘BOT Bytes’ of treatment ideas, training, and ideas to use the entire OT scope of practice!
Applying clinical reasoning and rationale to your treatment plans is difficult! BOT resources help break down the treatment into its parts and then they help you apply the occupational therapy framework and occupation-based reasoning to your documentation! When you know why you are doing something, you can help others see the crucial part OT plays in the rehabilitative process!
Buffalo Occupational Therapy provides access to their clinic in the evening through BOT Open Labs. Open Learning Labs in the studio are for students and practitioners of occupational therapy looking for hands-on experience and certification preparation quizzes! Hands-on practice is a must in order to be a competent practitioner.
Grading Up and Down
As an occupational therapy practitioner, it is essential that you master the art of grading an activity up or down. In other words, it’s our job to find the ‘just right challenge’. The treatment videos in The BOT Portal will give you strategies to grade the activity. During our in-person open labs, you will be encouraged to adapt to your client’s needs during a simulated treatment demonstration.
Treatments for Diagnoses
An occupational therapy practitioner can work with adults in a variety of practice settings. Depending on the practice setting, you will be required to use different intervention approaches based on the diagnoses and severity of symptom presentation. In both in-person Open Labs and online treatment Portal, Buffalo Occupational Therapy resources help refine your approach per diagnosis.
