Parents, need ideas for children with special needs? OTs, looking for resources?

Welcome!  My name is Cara Koscinski, The Pocket OT.  I’m a mom and long-time pediatric occupational therapist with both my doctorate and master’s degree in OT.

My passion is teaching parents and therapists. This website is filled with fun activities that anyone can use. Every idea I share has been lovingly practiced with my own children, students, and in my own clinic.

Both of my own children have special needs so I personally understand the challenges you face.                                           Keep my books in your pocket, I’m here anytime you need me!
