What’s Happening?

Need Resources for Telehealth??
With most OT’s working via Telehealth at the moment, don’t forget about the DOT(WA) Handouts! These are free and accessible to members and non-members, so you can either download one and email it to a family, or you can direct them to the website.

Note this link is for the non-members’ page, if you are logged in and want to view the members’ version, click the ‘Resources’ tab at the top of the page.






DOT(WA) are looking for a website coordinator for our Executive Committee. You don’t need any skills in website development, just basic computing skills. The role only requires an hour or so each month to help keep our website up to date. Plus you get to be a part of an energetic & enthusiastic group of OTs.
