Welcome to OT Student Info - your visual resource for Occupational Therapy Students and Therapists
As an Occupational Therapy (OT) student in 2011 in the 3rd year of a 4 year part time OT degree, I struggled with feeling like I didn't know and wasn't learning anything. I got frustrated by information not being organised or communicated in a way that helped me understand it. 

I used Mind Maps when I was in school and found them to be a really great way of structuring information as well as an efficient revision tool. I always dreamed of being able to connect all my Mind Maps up to create a network of information that I could access. 

I decided to build my own website for personal use as it seemed like a good way of being able to organise my Mind Maps and move between them. The website was successful and helped me to gain a First class BSc, my only regrets are that I couldn't give the development of the website itself enough time and that I hadn't started it from the beginning of my course.

Since 2011 the website has gone from strength to strength. It is now ranked number 1 on Google and Bing for "OT Student" and "Occupational Therapy Student". Since 2011 the site has had over 67,000 visits from over 130 countries around the world. In the past month alone there have been over 1,500 visits to the site from over 50 countries.

I offer this resource freely to anyone studying or practising Occupational Therapy without charge or advertising. 

Sadly, for all of its popularity and potential this website hasn't developed as it might have done. This is largely due to it being a personal project run by one person. It is also due to my no longer being an 'OT student' and in fact now working in a more generic role with specific challenges and not a great deal of free time. Over the years I have tried to entice other OT students to get involved. Just finding one person with the drive and creativity to join me in developing this would make a huge difference, especially if that person was an OT student or educator.

Using this site is easy, simply click on the circle with three lines inside it on each of the branches to move to another central idea. Most branches will have the same name as the corresponding page. If there are no links or you think that a Mind Map needs more detail please feel free to edit it using MindMeister.

If you want to please email me, I would love to hear any feedback, comments, suggestions of links etc. If I don't find someone to help with this project it will continue in its current form and I will continue to pay to host it for the benefit of those who use it, but it will not be fulfilling its potential. I really hope that you can see the potential as I once did.

Be well, Tommy Carr.
