Resources for Everyday Activities

Student and Practitioner Resources

Occupational therapy promotes participation in the everyday activities that are important to you. The current COVID-19 pandemic has caused a significant disruption and changes to our habits, routines, and rituals, severely impacting everyday life.

Our occupational therapy goal is to benefit people’s overall participation in everyday habits and routines that can positively impact our physical and emotional health as well as our overall well-being.

What can we do to adjust to our new “normal” and continue to live an everyday life to its fullest?

The University of Minnesota Occupational Therapy Program can help you answer the “now what?” question. Here are some short videos created by OT students of occupational therapy activities and ideas that support children, youth, and their families when we all stay home together.

Learn how the students and faculty of the University of Minnesota Occupational Therapy Program are working with individuals, families, and communities to promote healthier everyday living. See all their videos at our U of M OT YouTube Channel.
