Join in the fun for AOTAs Backpack Awareness Day on September 16, 2015. If you work in DC schools, this is a great opportunity to represent your state and national organization all while having fun and educating people about backpack safety and occupational therapy.
If you are a therapist who works in the schools, we encourage you to consider hosting a back pack event at one or more of your schools. Last year’s event at E.L. Haynes was a great success and we hope to make this year’s even bigger and better. All the information you need to host an event is on the AOTA website: http://www.aota.org/Conference-Events/Backpack-Safety-Awareness-Day.aspx
If you need volunteers or students to help with your event, please let us know. You can email Virginia Yeo at email@example.com for more information or support in getting your event up and running. If you are planning on doing something at your school, please remember to take photos and let us know so we can share this information on our website and Facebook page.
