The Pocket Occupational Therapist is an illuminating and essential guide for caregivers of children with physical and developmental disabilities or parents of children in rehabilitation from illness or injury. It contains questions that are frequently asked to pediatric occupational therapists about: -sensory processing, handwriting, core/body muscle weakness, feeding therapy, behavior, life-skills, transitions, coordination, developmental information and MUCH more!
Every question is followed by a detailed explanation that is easy to understand.

There’s something for everybody. The book is an invaluable resource for parents, teachers, therapists of all disciplines, and of course…occupational therapists!
“With love and understanding, Cara Koscinski creates an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand warehouse of information on occupational therapy. ‘The Pocket Occupational Therapist’ offers answers to many questions parents ask about OT: ‘why is my child presenting certain behaviors? What does pediatric OT look like? How do I find a qualified OT? How do I support my child’s therapy at home?’ Cara’s ‘Out of the POCKET Activities’ throughout the book offer strategies parents can use to complement their child’s therapy sessions. What a great idea!” – Ida Zelaya, President of Sensory Street, Inc.
“This pocket reference is an excellent resource to have in your toolkit if you have a child with special needs. In order to advocate for your child through a maze of services, recommendations and new lifestyle demands, it is essential to have the right information. The knowledge contained in this book is empowering and will help guide parents to quality services based on their child’s needs.” – Dr. Patricia Crist, Department of Occupational Therapy, School of Health Science, Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
“I just received your book yesterday and have one word for it: AWESOME!!!! I have shown it to friends who have children with SPD and autism and they are going to get a copy. I also shared it with the Special Needs Coordinator for our (schools) and she ordered a copy to share with the resource teachers. Thank you, thank you, thank you for such a wonderful resource for parents and teachers of special needs kiddos! I will continue to spread the word.” Mary -Washington D.C.
