Functional Activities for In Room Treatments
***FREE RESOURCE FOR ALL THERAPISTS WORKING DURING COVID-19***
For therapists who find themselves performing in room treatment sessions with little to no equipment, here is a list of activities to help re-energize treatment sessions, spark new ideas, and promote the use of functional activities. We at Therapy Insights aim to help clinicians continue to provide challenging and dynamic patient care with excellent outcomes. Any small items/activities used are inexpensive and may be purchased and distributed to individual patients for infection control purposes, made at home, or found and printed for free online.
Please note that this resource is most appropriate for occupational therapists, though physical therapists may also find helpful ideas. Collaborate with speech therapists to combine these activities with functional speech, language, or cognitive therapy if co-treatments are available.
