episode 37 we can collaborate too with cait bowen

In our field, it's natural for Occupational Therapists (OT) and SLPs to overlap each other in the goal to help our kids. But how can we initiate collaboration in a fun and effective way?


For today's coffee talk, I'm excited to chat with Cait the COTA. Cait spent most of her career as a social worker but has since found her calling as a COTA five years ago. She takes pride and loves every minute of play with her students as she helps them with their visual, fine motor skills, and writing challenges.


Listen in as she answers questions about the need for collaboration, how to plan activities with other specialists, and how to incorporate games into your routine. Don't miss a new resource we're sharing so you can cut prep time and focus on new activities!

  • How collaboration can be planned in advance
  • Examples of games that lead to more collaboration and how to incorporate them
  • What to do with children with sensory difficulties in speech
