Developmental Occupational Therapy (WA) Inc., known as DOT (WA) Inc. is a voluntary organisation that provides support to occupational therapists who work with children within Western Australia.
We support occupational therapists and occupational therapy students to network with their colleagues, share resources and information, and access high quality training events. We hold monthly meetings which can be accessed by video-conference using Scopia software on a desktop PC. The monthly meetings include professional development specifically relevant to occupational therapists working with children. DOT (WA) Inc. provides a free Resource Library for members. We have developed our own resources for occupational therapists including the "Play and Early Learning Handouts", which are simple, photo based handouts that can be used with families from a range of cultural backgrounds. DOT (WA) Inc. also offers grants to members to support research projects and innovative clinical practice.
