Every year on Instagram, Shannen Marie (@shannenmarie_ot) hosts an ABCs of OT challenge to advocate for our profession. The idea is that you post an OT word everyday that starts with each letter of the alphabet to educate on all the wonderful things an OT can do. I participated this year on my Instagram (@hamlinconsulting) with an assistive technology twist! I wanted to compile all the posts in one place, so here it is!
As the month wraps up, I wanted to start a discussion on the dynamic between assistive technology and mental health. It’s a great opportunity to highlight how assistive technology can work as both a means and an end to support mental health.
