October is Sensory Awareness Month

Throughout the US, Canada and England the month of October is Sensory Awareness Month. This is a time to raise awareness regarding sensory integration/sensory processing disorders within your community.

As continuing education is limited regarding this topic in the region, I thought I would share another e-learning course which is provided by the SPD (Sensory Processing Disorder) Foundation:


Educate yourself by reading about sensory issues. Many books can be purchased online.

See the book list on the SPD website: http://www.spdfoundation.net/books.html, which links you to purchase these books through Amazon.

Given the ever growing need for Occupational Therapists, I put together an article with a list of financial aid options for those hoping to enter the field. If you wouldn’t mind, could you share my article with your readers?

Here's the post:


Many thanks!

Hi Lobna,

Send me your email and we can chat.

Have you ever thought of studying abroad to become an OT? As it is taking a long time getting the program started in Egypt!
