Observing, volunteering, and shadowing is a great way to learn about pediatric occupational therapy, the tools, techniques, and the private clinic setting.

Volunteering at Tumble N Dots

Clinical observation (also known as shadowing) is not the same thing as volunteering at the clinic and other hands-on experience. Clinical observation is an observation of an occupational therapist in a clinical setting.


Volunteering is providing hands-on help in the private clinic setting with the guidance and supervision of an occupational therapist.

If you’re an Occupational Therapy student or a COTA student and would like to shadow or volunteer at our clinic, please contact us and let us know your availability. We will contact you back if we have a shadowing or volunteering opening.
