Below, you will find a free printable therapy planner calendar that is an awesome resource to add to your therapy planner. Use the planning calendar to dream up and create an action plan for occupational therapy themes during the upcoming school year. Just pop in themes from our weekly therapy themes list and make the planning each week fun and easy.
This therapy planner is perfect for school-based OTs, but it can certainly be used in clinics or in homes, too!
Free Therapy Planner
During the summer months, many therapists start thinking ahead to planning therapy activities for the next school year. I know, I know. Summer just started. Some of us still have a car trunk full of hanging files, worksheets, a therapy ball, and pencil cases full of pencil grips. Is it really time to start thinking about planning for back to school?
We are right on the brink of a new school year and you’ll soon be gearing up for another year in the clinic or classroom!
Therapy Planning Calendar
For the new school year, I have included a fun bonus to this post that you will find below. It is an editable Therapy Calendar for the upcoming school year…so you can change out the themes and make it meet your needs and the needs of those on your therapy caseload.
Sometimes weekly themes can help you stay motivated AND make your life easier as a therapist while helping to keep children engaged in therapy activities from week to week.
Enter your email address below to get the free printable therapy planning calendar. Use it as a guide to schedule and plan themed occupational therapy activities throughout the school year. You’ll also get a blank therapy planning calendar so you can fill in special themes that may go along with your school’s calendar or planned activities.
Have fun planning out activities for this year’s therapy sessions!
