Welcome to the American Occupational Therapy Association's Checking the Pulse blog. Written by Stephanie Yamkovenko, AOTA's digital editor.
Here you will find news about occupational therapy, current health news, and more. I regularly blog about apps that clinicians can use in practice, autism issues, managing chronic conditions, wounded warriors, and more.
AOTA members receive the biweekly OT Practice Pulse e-newsletter where we share resources and news from AOTA and other sources that directly affect occupational therapy practice—curated just for members! Here on the Checking the Pulse blog, I will share even more relevant and interesting news, videos, blogs, and more.
I read hundreds of articles about health, wellness, and policy every week to find the most engaging and enlightening content for you. Blog readers can stay in the know, go beyond the news, and find out how the latest health news affect occupational therapy.
Found a story worth sharing? Send it to us today! Or send me a tweet @AOTAInc.
U.S. News & World Report recently listed occupational therapy as one of the top 10 best jobs (again!).
As a follow up, they interviewed two AOTA members to find out what qualities made occupational therapy such a great job—hint, pay isn't one of them! Read about the qualities that your OT colleagues think make OT one of the best jobs.
We want to know your opinion! Why do you think occupational therapy is a best job? What qualities of your job make it great? Tell us in the comments.
To comment, please log in to OT Connections (it's free to join!).

Nice post Chris! I enjoyed this "everyone wants to find the best job that offers the best pay. BUT - the best job might not actually OFFER the best pay."
