Spider's are expert weavers. This connects them both to occupational therapy's traditional and stereotypical past of basket weaving and to the future of weaving connections of knowledge and expertise that the internet allows.

The spider is the perfect symbol for occupational therapy in 2012. We can only survive as a profession if we can clearly show how occupational therapy differs from other professions. We have to connect and collaborate creatively both within the profession and the wider settings in which we work.

Mindmaps are also sometimes called spider diagrams despite having more than a spider's eight legs! You'll also no doubt appreciate that since spider's spin webs, and this site is on the web it makes sense that it is created by a spider.

For me, the OT spider makes a neat symbol for www.otstudent.info
